I’m Not a Trophy believes in creating a visually unique campaign and by captivating an audience we can help educate the younger generation and attract people to the cause. I’m Not a Trophy is a platform to create awareness through an artistic approach on how to talk about conservation.

African Elephants, the world’s largest smartest land mammal are praised for their loyalty and longevity. As icons of the Africa continent,  elephants are mega-gardeners that boost the health of the ecosystem maintaining Africa’s diverse habitats. Forests of Africa depend on elephants for seed dispersal, that sequester carbon and release water and oxygen, a key role in global climate control.  These hulking megafauna are known for their intelligent, complex communication capable of being able to express joy, anger, grief, love, and compassion. Their highly developed social structure and beauty make them a wonder to behold in their natural habitat.
Every 15 minutes an elephant is brutally slaughtered for their tusks. Elephants are racing to extinction funded by greed, corruption, and an obsession with ivory. Their tusks are sold into the illegally ivory black market trade that feeds the demand for ivory in Europe, China, and the USA which is bankrolling the elephants loom to extinction.
