There are so many changes occurring in the elephant community these days, and as experts in the field, EMA members should have a say in what’s happening.
One great way to ensure that the right people are speaking for you and your elephants is to participate in this year’s EMA board election.
Are there people in the organization who stand out to you as leaders in the field? Then please consider nominating those individuals to run for election.
Any professional member in good standing is welcome to make a nomination.

The EMA Conservation Committee is excited to announce another opportunity to support our counterparts in Asia with the continuation of the “Hoof Knives for Mahouts” program!  This year the EMA Conservation Committee will be teaming up with the International Elephant Foundation to provide hoof knives for mahouts in Myanmar. A donation of just $10 will provide a mahout with a much needed tool and improve the lives of the elephants at the Myaing Hay Wun elephant camp. To make a donation, visit the EMA website at: www.elephantmanagers.com. Please specify that your donation is for the “Hoof knives for Mahouts-Myanmar” project.
