In these uncertain times and with social distancing in place, the keepers and herd of beautiful Asian elephants at Woburn Safari Park are unable to offer the usual fun activities and photos this year. However the team will be looking at how we can still make the same efforts in fundraising, all in aid of the International Elephant Foundation.
Ambassadors for their species
Asian Elephants, Chandrika, Damini, Yu Zin, Raja and adorable youngster Tarli are ambassadors for their threatened species and from the 8th to 9th August, they will be helping raise awareness for the plight of their wild friends and relations.
Elephants Under Threat
There are estimated to be only 700,000 African elephants and 25,000 Asian elephants left in the wild, so every penny raised counts.
By supporting the International Elephant Foundation (www.elephantconservation.org), the elephant team are helping conservation efforts in situ in both Asia and Africa. The IEF funds scientific research, education programmes and protection of elephants for future generations.
Woburn Safari Park has raised over £70,000 since 2014 for this charity!
