Keep them wild

They don’t belong to us

The exploitation of wild animals like Jahn for our entertainment, our medicine, our food, or our exotic pets is both horrendously cruel, and increases the risks to our own health and safety.

Elephants like Jahn are already victims of the wildlife trade. As the world goes into lockdown and the tourism industry dries up, it’s wild animals (who should never have been in captivity in the first place) who could suffer most, left abandoned, neglected and starving.

There has never been a more opportunistic time for our shared passion for animal protection to be put at the forefront of individual and government thought around the world.

Compassionate people like you can help ensure many more elephants and other wild animals like Jahn can have lives worth living.

Your compassionate gift today could help:

  • provide struggling elephant friendly venues like Following Giants with food, supplements, medicine and running costs, to keep elephants like Jahn alive during the pandemic.
  • continue our campaign to keep wild animals in the wild, pressuring governments for wildlife trade bans, and better animal welfare legislation; and
  • transition other venues like Following Giants to become elephant friendly and give lives worth living to what we hope to make the last generation of captive wild elephants used for entertainment.

Please donate today, help ensure elephants like Jahn have lives worth living and help us work together to keep wild animals in the wild, where they belong.
