World Elephant Day

Today is World Elephant Day.

Only 35,000 Asian elephants remain. The Asian elephant is the largest endangered mammal on Earth.

Elephants once roamed across most of Asia, from Iraq into India and from Southern China to the islands of Indonesia. However, hunting and habitat destruction have reduced their range to just 15% of their former habitat”

Can you imagine a world without elephants?

At the Mondulkiri Project we are hard at work supporting a protected forest to provide an elephant sanctuary for overworked and elderly elephants. Our three elephants, Sophie, Princess and Lucky all look so happy and healthy as they wander freely through the jungle.

Next month we are making a fundraising video so that we can try our best to keep more elephants in Mondulkiri rather than have them being sold to tour companies in Siem Reap for elephant rides around the temples of Angkor Wat.

We look forward to your support.
