Help us save the elephant!

The Sumatran elephant (Elephas maximus sumatranus) is only found on the island of Sumatra. There are estimated to be only 1,100 to 1,500 elephants left in the wild, mainly due to the forests of Sumatra being converted for palm oil and pulp paper at an unprecedented and unsustainable rate.

Elephants are highly intelligent and self-aware beings, therefore their needs can only be met when living in the wild in their natural family groups. This is the goal of the International Elephant Project's adoption program.
