Help feed rescued elephants still threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic
With your support, we are giving 10 elephant venues the critical financial support they need.
Higher-welfare venues allow tourists to observe elephants being elephants rather than allowing interactions like touching, riding or bathing. They offer elephants an escape from the terrible cruelty of the entertainment and logging industry, giving them the care and love they deserve, with the space and freedom to express their natural behaviours.
World Animal Protection has helped these venues throughout the pandemic by providing funding to help care for formerly abused elephants. Hear first-hand from our partner sanctuaries about how your support helps elephants:
“The situation is dire, with no income since March 2020,” says Jack Edwards, Director at Tiger Tops Sanctuary, Nepal. “Whilst we have partially opened, we don’t believe we will be profitable in the short term. The most difficult part of caring for the elephants during the pandemic is being able to feed them. We can’t thank World Animal Protection enough for their support.”
"Your support is our lifeline" Louise Rogerson, Co-founder and Project Director at Tree Tops Elephant Reserve, says. "The most challenging part of the pandemic has been finding sufficient food. We are heading into the dry season and it is becoming more and more difficult to find grass, and source appropriate nutrition. "Your donations are directly purchasing daily deliveries of pineapple grass, bags of rice and elephant pellets for rice ball mix for our elephants, as well as other available fruits. It lets us breathe a sigh of relief."
