Animal Rehabilitation: Elephants form deep bonds with each other, which last for decades. Their survival is strongly affected by access to the social and ecological knowledge that older elephants hold; where to go, what to eat, how to avoid danger. According to a Ney York research y Cynthia Moss in 1968, who moved from her job at Newsweek Magazine in York City to study elephants in Lake Manyara, Tanzania with Iain Douglas-Hamilton, within Four years later they teamed up with Harvey Croze and found ideal conditions for studying elephants in Amboseli National Park in Southern Kenya. Almost five decades later, her work is the longest-running study of wild elephants ever undertaken; documenting the lives of more than 3,500 elephants. In 1972 Cynthia Moss formally established the Amboseli Elephant Research Project (AERP). Since its inception; AERP has monitored Amboseli’s elephants, by identifying all the elephants in the population and collecting data on births, deaths and Behaviour. As a result, their work now provides a critical source of baseline data on elephants. Amboseli Trust for Elephants (ATE) was created in 2000 as a legal entity to formally enable the work of AERP. Now universally known as ATE, their project continues to carry out research and outreach activities following the Amboseli.

The project entirely relies on donations to enable their work, which requires a close relationship with both the elephants and the local communities. ATE has always maintained a close and collaborative relationship with the Maasai communities who live in and around the Amboseli ecosystem. Community members helps the team find the elephants, and inform the Amboseli Trust Fund of any problems that may require their intervention or support.
