BENEFITING: Elephant Care International
There are only betwen 20,000 and 40,000 Asian elephants and only 1500 at Laos , I want to raise money to help this French association who help to the development of births of these elephants slave of the timber industry
The work includes aspects of ElefantAsia veterinary, educational and economic: that is why the program of the association is based on three main areas of intervention.ElefantAsia has developed a unit of veterinary care, but also leads a campaign to raise awareness and environmental education, while developing solutions in line with theeconomic survival of the species.
The team provides training veterinary ElefantAsia owners of elephants in several provinces of Laos.
Today in Laos, there are only two births to 10 deaths per year in domestic elephants.
The fact that the elephant is overexploited in the timber industry is the main cause of his death, in part because it reproduces more.
Awareness-raising conducted by ElefantAsia intended as much to the Laotian population in general as mahouts in particular.
