Borneo elephants desperately need your help.   Their habitat is disappearing fast due to human expansion and agriculture development for palm oil.  This year alone over 30 elephants have been shot, poisoned or killed by snare traps.  We must act fast to protect them now.

Helping to protect this species will also help to protect other endemic species such as orang-utans, proboscis monkeys and hundreds of other bird and mammal species who are at risk of extension. 

WHERE YOUR MONEY WILL GO
We are raising funds for Borneo's first and only elephant sanctuary.  This sanctuary will provide a place where injured, displaced and orphaned elephants can receive food, medical care and be rehabilitated for release in a nearby reserve area.   

International support for this project will put pressure on the Malaysian Government to deliver on years of promised funding for this centre and bring the urgency of this issue to an international audience.

There are only 1200 elephants left in the wild in Borneo and they WILL be extinct if change does not happen now.  We can't let them go extinct like the rhinos.

Stage 1 of the Borneo Elephant Sanctuary - is a 4-acre eco farm to provide a sustainable food source for injured, displaced and orphaned elephants due to be housed in this facility.  This is the first stage of the project and once we have this, we can continue to grow - but it needs to happen FAST!   

There are currently 22 elephants in captivity, 14 at the degraded Lok Kawi Zoo where 2 elephants died from starvation earlier this year, 6 at Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary who desperately need more space and medical care and 2 at Borneo Elephant Sanctuary, living alone in holding pens with no enrichment waiting for the sanctuary to be finalised.  They all need our help urgently.

THANK YOU THANK YOU SUPPORTERS!! We aim to keep our 'FOOD FUND' going! More donations are desperately needed in order to keep supplying nutrient rich food to injured elephants. (Right now we have enough donations until September). It is so important for the healing process of injured elephants so please keep us in mind and share this. Many elephants are injured by illegal snare traps and end up needing vet care and housing.

This is another much needed item that was purchased with your donations. It is a high powered water pump to pump water up the the elephants enclosures. We care for displaced, injured and orphaned Bornean "pygmy" elephants at the only sanctuary in Sabah. It is essential that these elephants have a continuous supply of water under at the hot Sabah sun as in normal conditions an adult will drink up to 70 liters of water per day. THANK YOU SUPPORTERS! Your donations are making a difference.
