What we do.
Because it is a fact of life that thousands of elephants live in some form of captivity all over the world, and a large number of these elephants live in harsh or substandard conditions, there is a need to reform the way we train and care for them — to provide them with the physical, mental, and emotional care they need and to create environments that allow these sentient beings as much freedom of choice as possible.
We work directly with mahouts, trainers, and owners in developing countries to reframe the working relationship between human and elephant through positive reinforcement training, enrichment, and high standards of welfare.
The funds Elephation raises go towards covering travel and program expenses to allow us to provide free or low-cost services to elephant organizations who are sincere in their efforts to improve the lives of captive elephants and their mahouts.
Your support and contributions will enable us to improve conditions for captive elephants, their caretakers, and the communities in which they live. Your generous donation will go a long way and is greatly appreciated. We can't do it without you!
Elephation is recognized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
