Dedicated To Elephants Everywhere

Mission Statement

The Elephant Managers Association (EMA) is an international non-profit organization of
professional elephant handlers, administrators, veterinarians, researchers, and elephant
enthusiasts.  The Association is dedicated to the welfare of the world's elephants through
conservation, husbandry, research, education and communication.  Our members, who are
elephant managers in all environments, adhere to a Code of Professional Ethics and are
committed to providing care for elephants at the highest professional level.

Our Vision

EMA members are all working together to ensure elephants' survival.

Whether it is issues that surround managing elephants in human care or the threats that
elephants face in the wild, the EMA is striving to conserve these magnificent animals.

EMA members are people who care about elephants - people who know how important
elephants are.  People who want to learn more about elephants and wish to support the
EMA's conservation efforts.

Elephants are at a crossroads, and the paths are not clearly marked.  Instead of
waiting to see what happens to elephants, let's make something happen, together.
