About Save Elephant Foundation

 
 

Save Elephant Foundation is a Thai non–profit organization dedicated to providing care and assistance to Thailand’s captive elephant population through a multifaceted approach involving local community outreach, rescue and rehabilitation programs, and educational ecotourism operations. Each of our flagship projects is aimed at accomplishing that mission, as well as working towards these goals:

  • to expand self-sustaining eco-tourism operations that benefit local communities and ecosystems
  • to better incorporate our efforts into local communities and to ensure their benefit through our continuing operation
  • to become a leader in the field of Asian elephant research through academic outreach and education programs
  • to create practical, positive reinforcement based elephant training and rehabilitation programs
  • to establish an international volunteer community that raises awareness to issues facing the Asian elephant
  • to more fully integrate with the global conservation community to facilitate dynamic cross-cultural networking
