IFAW Interactive Magazine is now available for the iPad®

Welcome to IFAW’s new interactive magazine compiled by bigFIG Digital Media.

Global seizures of illegal ivory suggest that some 25,000 to 50,000 elephants were slaughtered in 2011 alone to furnish demand in major markets around the world. This interactive report by the International Fund for Animal Welfare lifts the veil on the escalating multi-million dollar illegal trade that has arguably become the gravest threat to the survival of the world's elephants.

Inside this exclusive IFAW interactive report multi-media features embracing animation, video, audio and stunning photography will enthrall you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Click the question to reveal the answer

  • Your magazine page doesn't show up nicely on my screen, formatting is all wrong and I can't click links.

    This is most likely a browser problem. Sometimes our pages don't play nicely with older browsers. We suggest using Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari to view our work.
    It also may simply be that you have a page zoom function on. Very often we’ve discovered (even internally) that the page zoom has been accidently enabled, and this causes all sorts of display issues. Pressing Ctrl and 0 (zero) resets it back to normal, while Ctrl + or – zooms in or out (Ctrl for PC, Cmd on Mac). If this doesn't help, please help us out by sending us your browser details. The easiest way to do this is to simply visit and follow the on-screen directions to send us those details.

  • I was just wondering if there is an Android edition available of your magazine.

    Not at this point

  • I have received the email about the new issue. Clicking on there takes me to the iPad page and screen grabs of the app.

    The subscription only kicks in after the release of the next issue after purchasing a subscription. In other words, when we publish the next issue of Safari, it should say "Download not Purchase."

  • What if I need more help?
