Elephants are used for rides and shows to entertain tourists. As a result they experience cruel and intense training and also suffer throughout their life in captivity.

Across Asia, elephants in the entertainment industry are enduring pain and distress. They spend their days performing tricks and stunts for tourists but behind these performances is a lifetime of cruelty.
Snatched from their mothers as babies or bred in captivity, they are isolated, starved and beaten into submission with nail-studded sticks – all in the name of entertainment.
With your help we can stop this cruelty. We are working with the tourism industry, tourist venues and local people and authorities to move towards more humane solutions.
