Elephant Aid International

Elephant Aid International (EAI) is a nonprofit organization that creates innovative approaches to the care and management of elephants worldwide. We unchain elephants in Asia, teach humane methods of training and handling elephants, and provide a natural habitat refuge for retired elephants in the U.S.

Elephant Aid Projects

EAI works to improve elephant welfare in captivity every day by giving caregivers the knowledge and tools to better meet the needs of the elephants in their care.



By contributing to A Year of Care for Mundi, you will become a member of her family, ensuring her bright future.

We hope you’ll join us in giving this resilient elephant the care she deserves. Every donation counts and helps us provide the best life for the elephants who call the Refuge home.

Birthday Fundraiser

Create a Facebook Fundraiser for Your Birthday
Your family and friends probably all know that you are very passionate about elephants. But do you really need another stuffed elephant? We didn't think so!

Facebook gives you the option to create a fundraising campaign that you can share with your family and friends to let them know that this year—in lieu of gifts—you would like a donation to be made to Elephant Aid International. It’s easy to set up, and you can even customize it with your own photo! Not your birthday? Consider hosting a fundraiser in honor of your favorite pet, family member or just because you care. Thank you!
