Freedom Refuge for Retired Elephants

Elephant Aid International (EAI) has secured an 850 acre parcel of land to create a pristine refuge for retired and rescued circus and zoo elephants. We need your help to secure the perimeter with the necessary double fencing to keep the elephant residents safe.

There are currently over 400 elephants living in United States zoos and circuses. Once they were wild but captured and put on display for entertainment. These elephants have been kept in chains or in cramped quarters for decades, unable to engage in natural behaviors and develop interpersonal friendships so necessary to their well-being.

You can help! Just $8 will pay for one foot of the Elephant Refuge Fence Project!
