Summary

Your gift to this project will go 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.

Challenge

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. Around 150 elephants and 50 people die every year as a result of the human elephant conflict in Sri Lanka alone. We can not just put elephants into protected areas and therefore need new strategies and research to help develop new initiatives and projects

Solution

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 are working with conservationists and 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.

Long-Term Impact

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 en sure we save Asian Elephants and this project promotes this.
