Against Ivory Trade

For 40 years, Franz Weber used to actively fight for the survival of African elephants and the complete prohibition of ivory trade.

Today, Fondation Franz Weber (FFW) is a partner organisation of the African Elephant Coalition (AEC) as well as of UNESCO in projects for species conservation and protection of elephants in Africa. In addition, FFW has had observer status at CITES since 1989 (see above). The foundation used to manage the Fazao-Malfakassa National Park in Togo for 25 years.
