3 Save Sivilai from a cruel life in service

Lek and Ashley were able to save Noi Na from a life of captivity, but thousands of elephants need our help – elephants just like Sivilai.

Love & Bananas

Her name is Sivilai.

Sivilai is young, but she looks old due to a lifetime of abuse. She has broken legs, but is forced to work and to breed despite the injury. Her current owner says she is ready to become pregnant again.

Sivilai is one of thousands of “service” elephants who have been broken for use in logging and trekking. Asian elephants are endangered, but they are still captured from the wild or captive-bred. All service elephants, whether kept for entertainment or for labor, are put through a brutal “breaking” experience known as a crush cage. Throughout their lives, most are confined and chained, malnourished, and without adequate medical care.

Please consider taking one more step today so that we can rescue Sivilai, give her the medical treatment she needs, and provide her a home where she can roam freely.
