Elephant Healthcare & Welfare
Emergency Lifeline Fund

 GOAL: $200,000

COVID-19 has changed everything – including the lives of an estimated 14,000 captive elephants throughout Asia and the people who ensure their well-being.

In a perfect world, elephants would not live in captivity and their fate would not depend on tourism – appeals like this would not be needed.

News from the Field – Please visit our partner (Work for Wildlife International) to read our reports about caring for elephants during the Covid pandemic:

Tourists have vanished along with crucial funds to feed and care for elephants.  Sadly, malnutrition (and even starvation) is on the horizon. Release to the wild is not an option (and illegal).  A downward spiral toward life-threatening conditions appears inevitable. Now,  Asian elephants need good nutrition and care more than ever.  Elephant veterinarians, mahouts, and other care providers are being laid off as budgets are whittled down to the bare minimum.  Wounds, infections, traumatic injuries, and malnutrition will go untreated…and many elephants will suffer. Some may die.

YOUR DONATION will support the “Elephant Healthcare and Welfare Emergency Lifeline Fund”— providing essential food, medicine, supplies, and hands-on health and welfare care for elephants when and where they need it—until the COVID-19 crisis has passed and the economies have stabilized.
