The African Elephant Specialist Group (AfESG) operates under the auspices of the Species Survival Commission of the World Conservation Union (IUCN). The AfESG is composed "of technical experts focusing 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." The AfESG website contains useful information for conservationists, wildlife managers and others such as a number of downloadable Human-Elephant Conflict Reviews and Case Studies; African Elephant Status Reports (from the years 1995, 1998, and 2002); and a small section of Tools for Elephant Management and Research. Site visitors can also peruse (or download) current or back issues of _Pachyderm_, a peer-reviewed, scientific journal focused on management and conservation issues concerning Asian and African rhinos, as well as African elephants.
