Advocacy

ATE has developed an increasingly authoritative voice in extending its scientific and compassionate understanding of the special qualities of elephants to the world at large. It continues to make a major contribution to the changing attitudes of people in Kenya, other African countries, and the rest of the world towards the treatment of elephants in the wild and in captivity. ATE provides consultancy and expert opinions on individual welfare cases and responds to requests for expert statements on specific captive elephants, facilities, or organisations. Phyllis Lee, Keith Lindsay and Joyce Poole make presentations on elephant ecology, conservation, and captive husbandry to decision-makers and elephant advocates. These experts maintain contact with respected elephant care experts in Asia, Europe, and the US, and maintain dialogue with some of the key players in elephant welfare in UK (Born Free Foundation) and the US (PAWS and IDA). Phyllis Lee is currently a member of the House of Lords / DEFRA UK Zoo Elephant Welfare Group, which is investigating the sustainability and welfare standards of all captive elephants in the UK.
