Captive elephants (as opposed to wild elephants) never get any say in their fate and that accounts for nearly half of the species on the planet today. Daily life doesn’t have to be as hard as it often is for the thousands upon thousands of Asian elephants in this unfortunate predicament, most of them with decades of life ahead of them. A lot of the issues around captivity don’t come from these animals lacking love and care from those around them, but rather from a lack of knowledge and understanding. It’s a problem that can be fixed - if the fix is supported. We’re working to create the best lives possible for these captive elephants. Head over to h-elp.org and have a look at what’s being done.
