The Board of Management:


Heike Henderson

appreciates elephants above all for their remarkable intelligence and strong sense of family. To protect the endangered giants, she co-founded Future for Elephants e.V.. She has been a member of the board since 2017. In addition to campaigning, she takes care of the exchange with nature and species conservation experts as well as decision makers in Germany, Europe, Africa and Asia. She uses her master's degree in business administration from the University of Hamburg and her versatile experience in marketing for international public relations. The Hamburg native also regularly visits African projects (privately funded) and maintains close contact with colleagues on the ground.


Andrea Schölermann

got to know and love Africa on her bicycle. Her first trip took her to Kenya 30 years ago. She spent six weeks cycling through the East African country. Further trips to different corners of Africa followed. When she is not sitting at her desk in an executive position at a large German insurance company, she supports Future for Elephants e.V. in strategic issues with public relations and website design. She is particularly committed to the preservation of elephant habitat and seeks solutions to the human-animal conflict.
