This project works towards giving an Elephant in Thailand or Sri Lanka a better life today. We are working with a number of carefully selected local communities to fight the illegal act of forcing an elephant to work in the tourism trade. Many Elephants are forced to work in cities by owners to bring in an income and this project aim’s to change this to a new strategy to promote ethical and responsible tourism in Asia.

Street begging and working in tourist camps significantly reduces the life expectancy of these endangered species. It diminishes their high cultural importance and places individuals in inhumane living conditions. Working elephants are waiting to join our forest reintegration program and funds are needed to facilitate this. Mahouts and owners join our education and alternative livelihoods program along with their elephants to ensure they have a sustainable alternative form of work.

Our project in Thailand actively rescues Elephants and rehabilitates them in a protected forest. This project is very important but we want to do more sustainable options and therefore in Sri Lanka we are working with conservationists to research alternative strategies for elephant conservation. We are actively implementing and seeing results from new protection strategies that we will roll out across Asia.

Increasing awareness and being at the front of new research to help tackle this issue is key to providing long term impact-driven strategies to ensure we save Asian Elephants and this is what our project promotes.
