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.

It means “the beautiful girl”, and Sivilai is young, but she looks old from a lifetime of abuse. She has broken legs but is still forced to breed, and to work. Her current owner says she is ready now, again, to become pregnant.

Sivilai is a service elephant, one of thousands of Asian elephants broken for service in logging and trekking; malnourished, and without adequate medical care. She needs our help.

A team of elephant rescuers, led by world-renowned Asian elephant conservationist Lek Chailert, is ready to rescue Sivilai and bring her to freedom.

Please help us reach our $40,000 goal so that Sivilai can be rescued.
