with Dr. Charles Foley
Join Dr. Charles Foley, head of the Tarangire Elephant Project in Tanzania, Africa, for a fascinating presentation on elephant conservation. Dr. Foley has studied elephants in the Tarangire National Park for 15 years. His project, funded in part by the Rhode Island Zoological Society / Roger Williams Park Zoo Conservation Fund, has expanded beyond the national park boundaries to identify migration corridors and work with local communities to insure their long-term protection. Foley's work has been featured in several wildlife documentaries, news programs, and popular wildlife magazines, including BBC Wildlife and Wildlife Conservation.

For Dr. Charles Foley, Director of the Tarangire Elephant Project?, few countries in the world can match Tanzania for its diversity of wildlife.
That's a key reason he and his wife Lara, manager of the Project, have spent the last 25 years living and conducting research in the Tarangire ecosystem.  Since 2007, the Indianapolis Zoo has provided annual support for the Tarangire Elephant Project and the Foley's efforts to conserve elephants and their habitat.  Charles, Lara and their two young daughters follow the lives of more than 1,000 elephants within 32 family groups.  One of the Tarangire Elephant Project's major purposes is to protect migration corridors and dispersal areas - areas outside the national park where elephants move seasonally. These protected grasslands are a critical food source for wildlife, as well as for the local community's livestock. Free access to these areas for all of the species in the national park is essential for their continued conservation. Despite poaching in other parts of Africa, Charles said the Tarangire elephants continue to thrive, with the local population estimated at about 4,200.

"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.
