Become A Friend of The Elephant Foundation

The Elephant Foundation is pleased to launch a new way of supporting us with a small monthly donation that collectively will help us enormously in running our operations. Traditionally we have relied on our gala dinner each year to raise funds for ourselves and those we support. As our programme grows, especially in terms of education and raising awareness, our operating costs also sadly increase.

 The work we do is very focused on endangered species, particularly elephants and rhinos but is growing to consider lions and the problems of human wildlife conflict. There is particularly a call to expand our education programmes to people on the ground in countries in South East Asia where the demand for animal parts is increasing. Since we started in 2014 we have visited schools and companies in Hong Kong with our main event being the Hong Kong Elephant Week each November. Our aim is to expand this to several sub events which in 2019 will include the Hong Kong premier of a documentary currently being finished about one of our guests this year, James Mwenda, called ‘Last Rhino Standing’ and, on 20th August, we will celebrate the life of George Adamson of Born Free fame as we reach the 30th anniversary of his death. We are hoping that Daniel Ole Sambu will be with us for those few days as we support the Predator Protection programme that he heads up at Big Life. Then, in November 2019 we hope to bring the Maasai Games https://www.maasaiolympics.com/ to Hong Kong with the winners of the 8 categories visiting schools to discuss their way of life, how they co exist with wildlife and its importance to them culminating in the actual Hong Kong Maasai Games which will consist of an inter school competition on one day followed by an inter company one the next.

 Of course, to put these sorts of events on we will need sponsorship but by giving an affordable amount each month you can help us develop our programmes so youth in Hong Kong can increasingly understand the importance of our wildlife and the environment we share with it and at the same time support operations on the ground in Kenya that we support.
