    Story

    For those of you that know me you will know that I am a huge animal lover and I have a particular fondness for our gentle giants the magnificent elephant.
    Not only do I find them beautiful, funny and intelligent I think they are a lot like us in many ways. They have strong maternal instincts, have complex society's, mourn their dead, honor fallen friends and family, display empathy, playful, have long memories and have even been known to cry when being freed from shackles after decades of abuse.

    I first became aware of the Asian Elephants plight a few years back after reading a distressing report in the daily mail. It tells of the utter torment and torture these beautiful creatures go through .

    http://www.dailymail .co.uk/news/article-3199391/Tortured-tourists-Chained-spot-20-years-Beaten-submission-secret-jungle-training-camps-terrible-plight-Indian-elephants-LIZ-JONES.html

    After reading their terrible plight and feeling so helpless I decided to support this fantastic charity as much as I could.
    Save the Asian Elephants is a not for profit association of prominent professionals, experts and campaigners that informs public opinion on the brutal capture, beating, poaching and abuse for festivals and tourism of these wondrous but beleaguered creatures and the plunder of their habitat; and exerts influence on governments, politicians and the tourist industry to adopt solutions it advances.

    Save The Asian Elephants works to end the terrible cruelty and brutal conditions suffered by this wondrous and ancient species. Intense though our feelings may be, STAE is respectful of the culture and traditions of the countries with whom it engages. It dissociates itself from any abuse as unworthy as well as counterproductive. Indeed devising proposals and implementing solutions for the elephants is a collective responsibility not of India or the other range states alone, but of all mankind.
