Elephants are sacred in the cultures of Asia - through film, social media, science and spiritual understanding, we serve as a channel to bridge modern concepts with old traditions.

We are Elephant Conservationists


We have a unique model for saving elephants and are passionate about our work. In Sri Lanka, we often embed ourselves with DWC's rangers and veterinarians.   In Karnataka, India we are conducting cutting-edge pilot studies of new technologies for elephant deterrence and forage enhancement.  In Myanmar we are guiding new elephant-centered businesses toward ethical operations.

Sri Lankan wild elephants are going Extinct!

Reports show that there were 12,000 wild elephants in Sri Lanka in 1990, and only about 4,000 today.  There have been nearly 300 confirmed elephant deaths in each of the past 5 years.   Nearly everyday we lose an elephant unnecessarily.  With only 4,000 of this species remaining - we must act now!
