Holiday Greetings from the ATE team... and from the elephants
Wishing all our supporters, friends and elephant lovers Happy Holidays and a peaceful New Year for both people and elephants.

Elephants in Your Christmas Stocking? 

Flash from the FB Family 
There are several ways you can support ATE while giving an elephant-themed gift to a friend or relative. 

Our Elatia Project is the perfect gift for an elephant lover. For just US$30 per year you can now 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. The donation required is usually US$2500, but for a limited time we are offering naming at US$2000. 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

Some of the highlights of the Elatia Families

We thought we would share some of the photos from families that belong to the Elatia Project as well as Amboseli's beautiful landscape to inspire you to join our elephant neighbourhood.

Please consider ATE in your year-end charitable giving. We are entirely supported by individual donors and small foundations and we rely on you to help us keep elephants safe and in the wild.
