This fundraiser is designed to relieve the Elephant Conservation Center during this current pandemic. Despite a low number of COVID-19 cases officially reported in Laos, the country has been in lockdown since the end of March and tourists have cancelled their visits to the Elephant Conservation Center (ECC), which makes up over 85% of their revenue. With 34 residential elephants on site, 50 wild elephants, and 70 caretakers, the ECC must rely on their donors now more than ever to make it through these tough times.
In order for the ECC to continue its mission, they will need to raise 80,000 € (~$85,000) to supplement their operating costs during this pandemic. This money will go to food for the elephants, veterinary care, and wages for their elephant caretakers. This is “A Small Contribution to a Jumbo Cause” to ensure these elephants’ survival in Laos. We have raised over $5,000 for this relief fund, making up over 15% of the total raised. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for this project. Your contribution matters, not only to us, but to the elephants of Laos!
Once named, The Land of a Million Elephants, Laos has less than 800 elephants remaining in the country today, 400 of which are in captivity. The Elephant Conservation Center was established in 2001 to rehabilitate the Asian Elephant population in Laos. Through their rescue and re-herding programs, the ECC is the first conservation project in history to release captive reared elephants back into the wild. If this program is successful, we may be able turn the tides on this endangered species.Learn More
