Provide Elephants with Room to Roam

We need your help to be able to rescue more elephants.

The female African barn is ready, and the first 3 yards are constructed. What the elephants need now is more ‘Room to Roam’. This expansion of the female African habitat will allow the space necessary so that those elephants can not only heal at sanctuary, but can thrive. This healing space is also required for us to be able to offer a home to additional elephants other than Kuky, Pupy, and Kenya.

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, 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 enamored by Guille’s youthful spunk, you can show them some extra love and support. You can become their Ele-Guardian or buy them a special gift from the Wishlist.

Guille

Guille is an exuberant young elephant who has livened up sanctuary life for elephants and humans!
