About this charity:
Elephant Family exists to save the endangered Asian elephant from extinction in the wild, along with tigers, orang-utans and all the other animals who share their habitat. We invest where we are needed most: to protect habitat, prevent conflict and reconnect the forest homes of the endangered Asian elephant.
