Stop their suffering
The 91 elephants at Amer Fort need you. Amer Fort is a tourist attraction in India where sick, blind, and suffering elephants are forced to give tourists rides hour after hour. Day after day. For years and years.
Sign the petition right now and tell the Rajasthan Government you think it’s unacceptable that the elephants of Amer Fort are:
- Only calves when they are torn from their mothers and forced to go through a horrific training process known as 'the crush' which breaks the animal into submission.
- Forced to carry the weight of tourists for many hours every day, causing skin and muscle injuries.
- Controlled with bull hooks which cause painful wounds and scarring.
- Chained to one spot when not being forced to carry tourists, causing repetitive strain injuries and painful foot problems.
A “once-in-a-lifetime” experience for you is a lifetime of suffering for them. Born into chains, beaten and stressed to make them submissive to give rides, these elephants are forced to walk over hot concrete and difficult cobblestones that damage their feet every day. They live with painful injuries hidden behind the cloak of their decoration. When they are not giving tourists rides, these gentle giants are cruelly chained in isolated pens and unable to socialize, graze or move freely causing them immense stress.
This is our moment to end cruelty! You have the power to stop the cruel exploitation of these elephants. Sign the petition now.
Take action now!
Tell the Government of Rajasthan to ban elephant rides and end this cycle of cruelty. Sign the petition now.
