Sri Lankan wild elephants are going Extinct, Keralan Temple Elephants are abused and Myanmar Logging Elephants need sustainable lives - SavingGanesh.org is on task!
Reports show that there were 12,000 wild elephants in Sri Lanka in 1990, and only about 4,000 today.  There have been nearly 300 confirmed elephant deaths in each of the past 5 years.   Nearly every day we lose an elephant unnecessarily.  With only 4,000 of this species remaining, we must act now - and we are!

Creating new and ethical tourism models for captive elephants is necessary in Southeast Asia and we are surveying the field and recommending facilities that meet our standards. We are disgusted by the temple elephant parade industry of Kerala, India and are battling to stop its expansion.
