Elephant Aid International
Elephant Aid International (EAI), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established to create a paradigm shift that will foster change in beliefs and approaches to the care and management of elephants. With the combined efforts of international scientists, veterinarians, mahouts, elephant caregivers and elephant welfare supporters, EAI is helping to change how the public relates to elephants; how mahouts (elephant handlers) and elephant caregivers train elephants; and how captive elephants are cared for worldwide. EAI has pioneered a new system, Compassionate Elephant Care, which will eliminate antiquated, dominance-based training and result in improved elephant welfare.
By providing education and hands-on assistance, EAI is working to end the worldwide suffering of elephants…one elephant at a time.
