The new approach to working with elephants


We aim to improve the welfare of working elephants, through the systematic application of humane, evidence based training. By doing this we will also improve the welfare and safety of elephant handlers and trainers.

HELP the Trainers

In Asia, elephants have been domesticated for over six thousand years. Adopting humane and effective training strategies ensures the sustainability of the relationship between humans and working elephants and allows future generations to enjoy these beautiful and remarkable creatures.

Our mantra follows that of Hellen Keller:

“I am only one, but I am still one.
I cannot do everything, but I can still do something; and because I can not do everything,
I will not refuse to do the something that I can do”
