Sanctuary Ethos and Facts
These days there are many imitation “elephant sanctuaries”
Just about anyone can say they have the elephant’s best interest in mind, but do they really?
• Share your understanding of appropriate elephant welfare.
• Keep in mind the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare when visiting a venue with wild animals of any kind.
• Don’t ride elephants or patronize shows where the elephants are clearly made to perform unnatural or human-like activities.
• If wanting to help elephants or experience them at close range, please support a ‘commendable venue’ or at least a venue that clearly prioritizes the elephant’s welfare.
• Set up petitions, organize marches, lobby politicians, and spread the word.
• Volunteer if you have the time, volunteering directly is a great way to contribute to the cause. See our volunteer page for more info!
• Donate directly to programs you support who are supporting elephants. You can find our donations page here to keep up with all our current fundraising efforts.
