Elephant Havens handler and baby

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.

Where is Elephant Havens?

We’ve chosen Botswana as the home for Elephant Havens. The government of this southern African country is committed to the well-being of its people, its wildlife, and its wild lands. Hunting is banned and anti-poaching laws are strictly enforced. Home to more elephants than any other African nation, Botswana is the perfect place to carry out our mission.
