He currently lives in Indonesia and works in close cooperation with the Frankfurt Zoological Society. Alex is a founding member of SECI and carries out the functions of president and scientific expert - the driving force behind our young initiative.

"Elephants are one of the few non-domesticated animals with which we are able to build up strong personal relationships. When studying elephants I often have the feeling that not only am I trying to understand them, but they are doing the same with me, It´s just great! For me, elephants are the most exciting and fascinating animals on earth and I am not willing to watch them die down here in Sumatra with my arms crossed and my mouth shut. Besides my personal feelings for elephants I believe that elephant conservation is important because their huge requierements in terms of space and their popularity make them a perfect flagship species for nature conservation. Saving elephant habitat will automatically save the habitat for many other endangered species such as Sumatran tigers, Sumatran orangutans, and clouded leopards, and all our efforts will help protect the remaining precious and highly diverse Sumatran lowland forest itself. It is possible to stop the ongoing destruction of the remaining wildlife and wild areas, but we have to act now and put all our strength in it." (Alexander Moßbrucker, 2010)
