ELEPHANT HEALTHCARE EMERGENCY LIFELINE FUND

GOAL: $25,000

COVID-19 has changed everything – including the lives of captive Asian elephants in Thailand.

In a perfect world, elephants would not live in captivity and their fate would not depend on tourism – appeals like this would not be needed. But 3,500 elephants in Thailand are at risk.

Tourists have vanished along with crucial funds to feed and care for elephants.  Sadly, malnutrition (and even starvation) is on the horizon. Release to the wild is not an option (and illegal). A downward spiral toward life-threatening conditions appears inevitable. Now, when Thailand’s elephants need good healthcare more than ever, elephant veterinarians are being laid off. Wounds, infections, traumatic injuries, and malnutrition will go untreated…and many elephants will suffer. Some may die.

YOUR DONATION will support the “Elephant Healthcare Emergency Lifeline Fund”— to keep elephant veterinarians on the job until the COVID-19 crisis passes. Funds will also purchase veterinary medicines, support health exams, and deliver essential emergency veterinary services to the elephants that need it most.

 YOU can make a difference…WHEN IT MATTERS MOST
