For many years elephants were snatched from the wild and used for tourist rides in Vietnam.
Will you donate today to help rescue elephants from this miserable life?
Though the poaching has stopped, there are elephants still being held in captivity and forced to carry and entertain tourists. Being ridden all day and carrying extra weight means their toes and feet become cracked and raw. Many elephants sadly die from sheer exhaustion and malnutrition.
But there is hope. Animals Asia has been working with the Vietnamese government, the Yok Don National Park authorities, the Olsen Animal Trust and communities in Vietnam to free elephants from being ridden by tourists.
We’ve brought sweet elephant, H’Plo (pictured), to the national park for good, where she joins five other elephants we’ve rescued. They all spend their days roaming the forest freely, simply being elephants.
We need your help to rescue more elephants, like H’Plo, from the pain and torment of the tourism industry. Will you donate today and give more elephants the life they deserve?
