Elephants are an endangered species and zoological institutions such as African Lion Safari play an important role in their survival. Unfortunately, all three species of elephants are endangered due to habitat loss/fragmentation, increased cases of human-elephant conflict, and poaching for their ivory tusks. Our elephants not only serve as ambassadors for their species in range countries, but also provide us with many learning opportunities to further expand our knowledge to better protect them from extinction. African Lion Safari is recognized worldwide for its expertise in elephant welfare and we are proud to have a very successful Asian elephant conservation programme. Our elephant care professionals are regularly consulted by conservation organizations worldwide for their input on issues of elephant welfare, healthcare management and conservation.
