Every day, elephants are suffering in the name of entertainment
Less than half of Thailand’s elephants are free. Across the country, hundreds of elephants are trapped in captivity, forced to perform for crowds or give exhausting tourist rides.
Training elephants for this work involves an intense and stressful breaking-in process. Elephants can suffer daily through constant restrain on chain, lack of social interaction with other elephants, poor diet, and health problems.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Together, we can create a better world for elephants.
Donate for elephants
We are working with tourist venues in Asia to end these cruel practices. We are helping transform them into destinations that are truly elephant-friendly, and we are supporting sanctuaries where rescued elephants can live happy and healthy lives.
We’re also funding a rewilding project to try and bring captive elephants back into the wild. This will create a long-term, sustainable solution for elephants in captivity, and give them the chance at the life they truly deserve.
The best place for wild animals is in the wild, and you can help us get them home.
