Tarangire Elephant Project Director Dr. Charles Foley presents Elephants and the Ivory Crisis: Working with the Dallas Zoo to Protect Elephants and their Habitat in Tanzania at a Wild Earth Conservation Lecture 7 p.m. on May 25 at the Angelika Film Center Dallas.

Dr. Foley is Assistant Country Director for the Wildlife Conservation Society, Tanzania Program. He and his wife, Lara, have studied the elephant population of Tarangire National Park in northern Tanzania for more than 20 years. Dr. Foley’s work on elephants has covered a variety of different topics, including behavior, genetics, and human wildlife conflict, and he has individually recognized and named over 1,000 elephants.

In the past 10 years, Dr. Foley has focused his work on identifying and protecting elephant migration corridors and dispersal areas in community lands outside the Tarangire National Park, with the aim of ensuring long-term conservation of the elephant population in the ecosystem. The Tarangire Elephant Project also provides support to both community and government anti-poaching units in the Tarangire ecosystem, where elephant poaching has been extremely low for the past 20 years.

The evening will feature extraordinary photos and inspirational stories of the work to save the world’s largest land mammal from the ravages of ivory poaching. Don’t miss the chance to celebrate the heroes working to save elephants from extinction and learn how you can help.
