The magnificent Asian elephant is threatened by extinction in the wild, its habitat is shrinking fast.
Asian elephants used to roam across most of Asia, but now they’re restricted to just 15% of their original range. Asian elephant numbers have dropped by at least 50% over the last three generations, and they’re still in decline today.

Give a gift that will help protect the future of elephants and their habitats
Elephants and people are coming into contact more often – and conflicts can occur.
As Asia's human population grows rapidly, more and more wildlife habitat is lost or fragmented.
Still killed for their tusks, meat and skin
Taken from the wild for the live elephant trade – primarily going to Thailand for the tourism industry.
We’re helping protect habitats and improve connections between fragmented areas where Asian elephants live. We're working with governments and local communities to reduce conflict between people and elephants. And we’re influencing policy and legislation to benefit elephant conservation.
We’re tackling poaching by working with law enforcement agencies and governments to improve the enforcement of laws on the illegal trade in elephants and their parts.
Your adoption and support will help us:
- protect habitats and restore degraded biological corridors
- train and equip anti-poaching patrols
- work with local communities to monitor elephant movement and reduce human-elephant conflict
- fund our other essential work around the world
