We’ve been positively impacting conservation efforts and building healthy communities in Botswana since 2018.
At the country’s only elephant orphanage, we are making strides toward the preservation of the African elephant by rescuing orphaned and abandoned elephants, reducing human-elephant conflict, and protecting wild habitats from human encroachment.
Foster an Elephant
Young elephants are remarkably fragile both physically and emotionally. They must be bottle-fed a special formula every three hours to survive. Emotional support is just as important, so human handlers live alongside the orphans, never leaving them alone. Eventually the orphans can be weaned and reintroduced to the wild. By following the lead of others who have successfully raised many healthy orphans, we know we can save these remarkable animals. But we can’t do it alone.
When you symbolically foster any of our orphans you are directly contributing to the round-the-clock care and companionship these vulnerable babies require. Your gift goes toward expert health care, special lactose-free formula, and 24-hour care by devoted handlers.
