Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society

For over 21 years Sri Lanka Wildlife Conservation Society (SLWCS) has worked to find solutions to human elephant conflict. By working directly with communities, they established Project Orange Elephant which encourages farmers to cultivate oranges, a crop that elephants are not attracted to. At the same time, growing oranges helps rural Sri Lankan farmers to create a new, sustainable income while keeping both their families and wild elephants safe. Through their efforts, SLWCS is striving to help elephants and people coexist.

Friends of the Asian Elephant

 

Friends of the Asian Elephant was established to protect and conserve the welfare of elephants in Thailand. FAE’s elephant hospital provides free medical care for sick and injured elephants, as well as education for keepers. Its Mobile Vets Project sends teams to Northern Thailand to diagnose and treat elephants. It also works collaboratively with other organisations to advocate for elephant welfare. We are one of 160 travel companies who no longer offer elephant rideson our trips after learning about abuse.

World Animal Protection

 

Global polls suggest most tourists who visit wildlife attractions do not realise animals are being harmed. And when they are told about cruelty, most decide not to go. This is why World Animal Protection is committed to educating tourists to stop demand, while also working with the travel industry to prevent the sale of tours that include animal attractions. World Animal Protection's other work includes protecting animals in farms, disasters and in the wild.
