SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., June 28, 2021 – Elephant Cooperation (EC) is proud to have partnered with Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project’s “Night Out 2021: Fast & Furious”. EC supports Charlize’s commitment to African women and youth, COVID19 relief, and a more equitable future where all young people can stay safe and healthy.
“African youth represent the future of animal conservation, so anything that helps them live safer, healthier lives is something we support,” says Scott Struthers, local entrepreneur and founder of EC. “Through our Elephants to the Rescue project, we are helping COVID19 impacted women and children living near wildlife areas.”
EC is also a “Conservation Hero” for The Ellen Fund’s “The Endangered Campaign”, which is focused on saving seven highly endangered species by bringing their dire situation to light in a documentary voiced by Ellen DeGeneres.
“We love that more and more celebrities are using their influence to highlight the plight of African children and their families and the growing danger of extinction for some of the world’s most iconic animals,” adds Scott. “When Charlize’s and Ellen’s fans learn about these problems, they will want to help.”

CTAOP’s mission is to help keep African youth safe from HIV through its support of on the ground, community-engaged organizations. CTAOP serves as a vehicle for communities to empower themselves and their youth in order to prevent the spread of HIV. With the help of CARE and Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), Charlize and CTAOP launched ‘Together for Her’: a campaign to help fight gender-based violence during COVID-19.

About The Ellen Fund
Founded in 2018 by Portia de Rossi as a gift for Ellen DeGeneres, The Ellen Fund’s first project was to secure a future for wild mountain gorillas by supporting a 12-acre science and education campus for the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund in northern Rwanda, which is set to open in late 2021. And while The Ellen Fund has been known for support of gorilla conservation, The Ellen Fund is much more than that.
The Ellen Fund supports global conservation efforts for endangered species. Its platform uniquely brings attention to game changing conservation projects, uplifts women and conservationists of color, and inspires the hope that anyone can make a difference.
