When the pandemic shut down Thailand's tourism, thousands of captive elephants were shackled in chains and left to starve, their keepers no longer able to afford to feed them.
But our friends at Save Elephant Foundation stepped in with an idea to save them -- help their owners transition from cruel circus camps to ethical elephant sanctuaries, supported by people around the world who want to foster an elephant.
It's working! At one business known for its circus show, 53 elephants now roam free, no longer forced to give rides and perform all day. But taking care of an elephant is expensive -- just imagine how much they eat every day! Plus vet care, security, and more. The foundation desperately needs funds to keep the project going.
Together, we can help give these elephants their freedom. Can you chip in to save these elephants and protect wildlife worldwide?
