Holiday Greetings from the ATE team... and from the elephants
We have good news--the drought is over. Amboseli received just under average rainfall for this time of year, but it was enough to bring up the bright, green grass that is so important to all the grazers. We at ATE feel optimistic for the New Year. We wish all our supporters, friends and elephant lovers Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a peaceful New Year for both people and elephants.

Amboseli Trust for Elephants
Elephants in Your Christmas Stocking? 

There are several ways you can support ATE by giving an elephant-themed present to a friend or relative. 
Our Elatia Project is the perfect gift for an elephant lover. For just US$30 per year you can follow one of the Elatia elephant families with exclusive photos, films, and updates on the family's progress. 
The word 'Elatia' means 'neighbour' in the Maasai language. So what are you waiting for? Join the Amboseli neighbourhood! Click here
For supporters with higher budgets who would like to get up  close and personal with the Amboseli elephants, we are running our special  holiday offer to name one of Amboseli's elephant calves. Do you have a special friend, partner, parent, or grandchild you would like to honour in this way? Remember ATE is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation which means your donation is tax deductible.  To name a calf write to us at

This Year's Newborns

For elephants, the biggest gift is the arrival of a new member to the family. There is always a sense of excitement and joy. We would like to share that happiness with our followers and supporters.
