Help break the iron chains placed on elephants.
Humane Society International's (HSI) project, Jaipur Elephant Welfare, is working to improve the quality of life for elephants in captivity in India. HSI's long term objective is to free all elephants in captivity in Jaipur, Rajasthan. For the first time ever elephant owners are cooperating with HSI and that is the first step on the long road to freeing all elephants in captivity. Elephants that are owned are kept restrained by heavy iron chains that can bite into flesh and will often rub skin raw. This leads to infections and injuries in elephants making it hard for them to walk.
These iron chains can be replaced with nylon bands that are not harmful to the elephants. In order to get the owners to change from iron chains to nylon bands, HSI will offer 50% of the amount towards the nylon bands and will ask the owners to cover the other half. The goal is to make every elephant chain free.
You can help. Just $5 contributes to breaking the iron chains and replacing them with a more comfortable option.
