African Elephant Specialist Group

The African Elephant Specialist Group focuses on the conservation and management of African elephants. The broad aim of the AfESG is to promote the long-term conservation of Africa's elephants and, where possible, the recovery of their population to viable levels.


Wildlife Conservation Society

The Wildlife Conservation Society saves wildlife and wild places worldwide through science, global conservation, education and the management of the world's largest system of urban wildlife parks, led by the flagship Bronx Zoo. Together these activities change attitudes toward nature and help people imagine wildlife and humans living in harmony.


Frankfurt Zoological Society

The Frankfurt Zoological Society provides logistical support of national parks and other conservation areas worldwide, assisting public authorities and organizations in the establishment and implementation of conservation areas. It specializes in advising government agencies in conservation queries, financing and assisting in animal census surveys, conservation education, and providing individual protection programs and reintroduction programs for endangered species. It also specializes in land acquisition to secure valuable habitats for flora and fauna and the protection and regeneration of natural landscapes.


African Parks

The African Parks network takes on total responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of national parks and other protected areas, in public-private partnerships with African governments, placing emphasis on achieving financial sustainability of parks through tourism and associated private enterprise. The network currently manages Liuwa Plain National Park in Zambia, Majete Wildlife Reserve in Malawi, Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Bangweulu Wetlands in Zambia and Akagera National Park in Rwanda.


Save the Elephants

Save the Elephants was founded by Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton, one of the world’s foremost authorities on the African elephant. Douglas-Hamilton pioneered the first in-depth scientific study of elephant social behavior in Tanzania’s Lake Manyara National Park at age 23. Save the Elephants works to secure the future for elephants and sustain the beauty and ecological integrity of the places they live in. 


Paul Allen

While much has been written about Microsoft's early years, Paul Allen has never before told the story from his point of view. Nor has he previously talked about the details of his complex relationship with Gates or his behind-closed-doors perspective on how a struggling start-up became the most powerful technology company in the world. Idea Man is the candid and long-awaited memoir of an intensely private person, a tale of triumphant highs and terrifying lows.
