Dedicated to creating a peaceful future for elephants in Southern Tanzania, and beyond


We operate on a small budget with very low overheads, compared to many other, larger conservation NGOs. We are however dependent on grants from larger organisations, and on the generosity of private individuals.

We are constantly trying to do more to protect elephants. Any kind of donation, large or small, will contribute directly to conservation of elephants in southern Tanzania. We are happy to accept donations for particular, specified activities or equipment.

Donations can be made online here. Alternatively, you can email us directly ( to discuss or arrange a contribution.

We are extremely grateful for your assistance.

Dr. Trevor Jones, on behalf of the STEP team.
