African elephants are in peril. Once you see and experience the plight as we have, it’s impossible not to feel moved to want to help.

We formed THE MUTAPA FOUNDATION in March 2015 after repeat visits to Zimbabwe made us realize how important it was for us to act.

Our goal at MUTAPA is direct and simple: to save baby elephants orphaned as a result of rampant poaching, and supervise their controlled reintroduction into the wild. We are doing this work through our strong partnership with the Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery (ZEN), the country’s first and only orphaned baby elephant nursery. This effort is already producing truly uplifting results. Since we began our work, the number of elephants saved from death has grown to six.

MUTAPA is a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) organization, meaning your donations may be tax deductible under U.S. law.
