Ethical sanctuaries and how to ensure you're supporting one
What's the difference between ethical and non-ethical sanctuaries?
Why aren't captive elephants always released back into the wild?
Sometimes the safest place for an elephant after being rescued or "retired" from the entertainment industries are at ethical sanctuaries.
What conflicts do elephants face?
Elephants are continuously being poached for the (illegal) ivory trade, forced into entertainment industries, suffer wildlife-human conflict, and major habitat loss.
What are the proceeds used for?
Proceeds that are sent to elephant saving organizations, sanctuaries, and rehabilitation centres are used to provide the proper care to resident elephants.
