You only have to find well-established organizations who are genuinely concerned about the elephants. The organizations have worked, and the US government finally banned the sale of Ivory in 2016 and China has pledged to do the same.

There are many accomplishments the organizations have made such as the Wildlife Trafficking Act being passed.

Elephants contribute to the economy since several people come to see them which boosts the economy and helps citizens sell their services and other products. Before joining an organization, it is best to know which countries they operate in and how the donations will assist the elephants.

An excellent organizations to help elephants will have a team of rangers and legislators who make sure the national parks are well-managed and interact with communities. The Communities have to be educated on the importance of the elephant which is solely handled by the organizations so they will stop killing the elephants and have solutions in place, so they do not penetrate their farms and property.
