Help stop elephants being cruelly exploited

Baby elephants are torn from their mothers and cruelly forced to work in the logging industry, perform for crowds or give exhausting tourist rides.

Elephants are put through a brutal training process. To crush their wild spirits, they’re chained up, beaten, starved and kept in isolation. Many are left with lifelong physical and mental trauma. 

When they become submissive enough, elephants are made to do stressful, backbreaking work day after day. Denied the chance to roam freely or spend time with other elephants, they suffer terribly. 

It’s an outrage that elephants are being so horrifically abused and exploited. But together, we can change things.

We’re determined to make tourist venues elephant-friendly and support sanctuaries where rescued elephants can live happy, healthy lives. Will you help? 

You can help protect elephants and end the abuse.

Lotus’ story: A life-changing rescue

As a baby, Lotus was put through a brutal training process. When she grew bigger, she was forced to carry tourists on treks over steep, stony ground, and beaten to make her go faster. 

Lotus’ injuries became infected, making it painful to walk. When she became too sick to continue, she was abandoned at the side of a busy road. 

Luckily, Lotus was rescued. Today she’s thriving at an elephant sanctuary, where she spends all her time chatting to her two best friends.
