"A lot needs to be done before we have the capacity to adequately protect elephants in their natural habitat," said Dr. Charles Foley, director of the Tarangire Elephant Project. "That's why raising public awareness about poaching and the ivory trade is so important." Dr. Foley said people are astonished when they realize the perils elephants face in the wild and the immense number killed for their ivory each year. "That's the message that we need to get across loud and clear. Why? Because the more that members of the public know about the poaching situation, the easier it is to shift public opinion away from buying ivory," he said.

Dr. Charles Foley, head of Tarangire Elephant Project in northern Tanzania said elephant poaching and trade in bloody ivory is becoming a major threat to the East African jumbos.

Dr. Foley reported that thousands of elephants are being poached annually and a record amount of illegally traded bloody ivory from Tanzanian elephants is being seized after being transported through Tanzanian and Kenyan ports.
He (Dr. Foley) will this year implement a conservation plan to protect a new elephant project through funding of US$ 90,000 collected through donations from parking for last year's Super Bowl for the Indianapolis Zoo in the United States.
"The Indianapolis Zoo is proud to support this vital work in helping to save African elephants, the world's largest land animal and one of the most intelligent and fascinating creatures on Earth," Dr. Foley said.

Charles Foley, Ph.D., has been working in the Tarangire National Park in Tanzania, Africa, since 1993. The Tarangire Elephant Project (TEP) was started as part of Dr. Foley's doctoral thesis study with the Princeton University.

Information from Dr. Foley and his team have helped not only the Dallas Zoo, but other institutions better understand movement of large wildlife. This understanding has led to the development of larger, more functional habitats.
Charles Foley at Zoo The Dallas Zoo has teamed up with Dr. Charles Foley, who started the Tarangire Elephant Project (TEP) in Tanzania in 1993 as a doctoral thesis study at Princeton University. A significant portion of the TEP focuses on elephant family groups and migration routes.
These migration corridors were factored in during the design of the Giants of the Savanna, thus providing multiple pathways for the animals to travel within the flexible habitat. With such a design, the pachyderms could walk up and down hills and reach into niches for surprise treats in order to exercise their bodies and trunks and better utilize the acreage given to them. In his return visit to the Dallas Zoo in 2011following the opening of Giants of the Savanna, Dr. Foley noted that the elephant behaviors witnessed at the exhibit are like those he sees in the wild.
