Provide Elephants with Room to Roam

We need your help to grow.

The barn is ready and the first three yards complete. Now it’s time to expand the habitat for the first female African elephants, so they can not only arrive 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, or think that Bambi’s energy livens up the herd, you can show them some extra love and support. You can become their Ele-Guardian or buy them a special gift from the Wishlist.

Lady

Lady is a sweet and spunky girl who is learning to navigate through her past traumas so she can heal.
