Over 30,000 ele­phants are killed every year for their ivory – that is one ele­phant every 15 min­utes. The Ele­phant Cri­sis Fund has one goal – to end the ivory cri­sis. The Clymb is proud to part­ner with our friends over at the ECF to help share their mes­sage with the out­door community.

Addi­tion­ally, Sep­tem­ber 9th, The Clymb will be donat­ing 10% of all pro­ceeds from mer­chan­dise sales and Tan­za­nia Safari Trip pur­chas­es to the Ele­phant Cri­sis Fund. If you would like to donate direct­ly to the ECF, please fol­low this link.

About The Ele­phant Cri­sis Fund

The Ele­phant Cri­sis Fund is a joint ini­tia­tive between the Wildlife Con­ser­va­tion Net­work and Save The Ele­phants. Unit­ed around the sin­gle goal of end­ing the ivory trade, the ECF sup­ports a glob­al coali­tion of NGO’s, sci­en­tists, thought lead­ers, and gov­ern­ments. So far, the ECF has been suc­cess­ful in invest­ing over $7 mil­lion into 105 projects span­ning 52 orga­ni­za­tions and 22 coun­tries. The ECF allo­cates cru­cial dona­tions to projects and orga­ni­za­tions, with 100% of funds going direct­ly into the field to help com­bat ivory poach­ers and traffickers.

Every dol­lar mat­ters when it comes to sav­ing ele­phants and the ECF is just over halfway to their $15 mil­lion fundrais­ing goal. The ECF is tak­ing to social media with the #Kno­tOn­My­Plan­et cam­paign to close in on their target.

Get Involved

#Kno­tOn­My­Plan­et is a cam­paign that aims to pro­vide a secure future for ele­phants by rais­ing funds and aware­ness for the Ele­phant Cri­sis Fund. #Kno­tOn­My­Plan­et pays homage to one of the key char­ac­ter­is­tics that make ele­phants amaz­ing — their memory.

We tie knots to remem­ber — around our fin­gers, wrists, doors, trees, etc. This Sep­tem­ber, we’re tying knots to show that we will nev­er for­get ele­phants. The #Kno­tOn­My­Plan­et cam­paign encour­ages the out­door com­mu­ni­ty to tie a knot to remem­ber ele­phants and share their knot pho­to across social media channels.

Tie your knot with climb­ing rope, a pair of hik­ing boots, a ban­dana — any­thing. Sim­ply share a pho­to using the hash­tag #Kno­tOn­My­Plan­et on Insta­gram, Face­bookTwit­ter, and Snapchat. Shar­ing a pho­to can go a long way in rais­ing aware­ness and spread­ing the ECF’s message.
