ABOUT US

Our Mission

To preserve elephants by building awareness through contact and education in partnership with our animal ambassadors. Contact cultivates caring, which encourages conservation.

The Preserve is dedicated to expanding elephant education, knowledge, and conservation. These efforts have brought about numerous professional accolades and recognition. We’re committed to doing our part to help save elephants from extinction.

The innovations in care and husbandry of elephants at The Preserve have spread around the world and have benefited a myriad of other elephants in human care and in the wild.

The elephants at The Preserve are ambassadors, educators, cultural icons, and the darlings of their community and their many fans. Together, this elephant family is determined to move ahead with a strong purpose to inspire and connect people with this endangered species.

“Elephants are a keystone species. That means if we protect and conserve elephants, we protect and conserve a whole bunch of other species. The International Elephant Foundation works with a lot of other conservation organizations exactly for that reason. Elephants are amazing animals, and they deserve to be protected just because they’re incredible, but we also NEED to protect elephants because they are so important for the health of the planet.” 

Elephants’ native habitats are under constant threat. They are forced to compete with humans for resources, causing human-elephant conflict where the elephants pay the price. Combined with security threats from poaching, these environmental challenges create a world where the only future for elephants is in managed care.

Elephants’ survival depends on nurturing from us, their guardians, and their ability to touch peoples’ lives. Elephants in human care play a significant role in saving this endangered species from extinction. We rely on supporters like you. Now is the time to help secure a future for elephants through engagement and getting to know this remarkable species.

​We strive to bring our visitors an unforgettable experience with the unique opportunity to interact with elephants. Our elephants receive world-class care in order to provide them with an enriching lifestyle, and our visitors with a safe and educational experience.
