Baby elephants are captured in the wild and “broken.”

Baby elephants are poached from the wild, isolated from their mothers, and bound and beaten for months until they’re so terrified of people they’ll do anything to avoid the abuse. This cruel practice even has a name, “phajaan,” or “breaking of the spirit.” Once their spirits are broken, they are traumatized, overworked, and seen only as money makers for decades. Wildlife SOS is committed to eradicating this abusive industry, and it starts with YOU!
