Provide Elephants with Room to Roam

We need your help to grow.

The male Asian elephant habitat is under construction. Currently, the barn and stalls are being completed and the fencing has begun going up. The female African barn is ready and the first three yards complete. Our other essential project is the Room to Roam initiative, which will allow us to expand the female African habitat so that those elephants can not only heal at sanctuary, but they can thrive. This healing space will also enable us to offer a home to additional elephants.

Meet Our Elephants!

Whether you adore Maia’s quirky ways and keep her close to your heart as she finds a new level of emotional strength, have a soft spot for Rana, her sweet vocalization and appreciation of everyday joys, would like to take Lady and her ailing body under your wing, embrace Mara because you are enamored with her sweet face and charmed by her innocence, think that Bambi’s energy livens up the herd, or are looking forward to watching Pocha and Guillermina learn and evolve, you can show them some extra love and support. You can become their Ele-Guardian or buy them a special gift from the Wishlist.
