If you truly love elephants, you’ll never ride one. Here’s why …

If you love elephants, please don’t ride them! Elephants used for riding suffer extreme abuse throughout their lives. They’re poached from the wild as babies, then isolated from other elephants and beaten until they’re so terrified of people they’ll do anything. This cruel practice even has a name: phajaan, or “breaking of the spirit.”  Then, spirits broken, they are beaten, overworked, and seen only as money makers. We are committed to eradicating this abusive industry! Please join us!
