‘What can I do, what difference can one person make?’
It’s natural to ask that question when faced with issues that seem too large and overwhelming for an individual to impact. But when you add your voice to others, it becomes amplified and part of a force for change. Joining a protest, volunteering at a sanctuary, advocating against cruelty, adopting a rescued elephant, or creating a fundraiser for an elephant cause are some of the many actions you can take as an individual and with others that deliver much-needed help to elephants.
The most immediate way to help is to donate to organisations and groups working tirelessly to protect elephants and care for those who have been injured or traumatised. Even the smallest donation helps! It will go towards saving elephants’ lives and to projects on the ground that need your support to continue, such as anti-poaching patrols, orphan rescues, mobile vet units, campaigns to educate, and initiatives to reduce conflict.
Buy a cake for elephants!
You can buy a beautiful cake made from fruit and vegetables for sanctuary elephants to enjoy. Each cake is designed with great skill and care by dedicated staff, making a unique gift for any occasion (and you’ll get a video of the elephants enjoying their delicious treats!). The cakes also give their owners an alternative income, so it’s a win-win all round.
