IFAW’s Room to Roam initiative is a new and visionary approach to conservation in Africa, with elephants and people leading the way. Backed by 20 years of science, fieldwork and engagement with local communities, Room to Roam will ensure persistence of viable and stable elephant populations long into the future. By securing and connecting habitats, and by bringing people together, we will create safe passages for elephants and other wildlife to move freely within their home ranges of East and Southern Africa. The result is greater biodiversity, a natural resilience to climate change, and a future where animals and communities can not only coexist but thrive.
