There has been a whirlwind of activity on the EAI website since it launched less than two weeks ago. The response to our mission, goals and programs has been outstanding. Our 2010 focus on Thailand, India and Nepal has been met with enthusiastic support.
Elephant Aid International is humbled by the many elephant experts who have agreed to be on our Advisory Council. It is my honor to welcome these renowned professionals, people distinguished by their contributions to elephant welfare. These accomplished individuals will assist EAI’s efforts, providing expertise and direction for EAI’s elephant welfare programs and the care of individual elephants . We welcome the Advisory Council with sincere appreciation, recognizing that our combined efforts will further benefit elephants worldwide.
The two people responsible for the design, development and content of our stunning website may prefer to remain behind the scenes but their brilliance must be acknowledged. This site will continue to be a vehicle to move our work forward. It will be a source of news, features and information; a place for all of us to stay engaged.
As for the outpouring of support from elephant lovers, trainers, caregivers, keepers, activists, veterinarians, scientists, researchers and educators, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your trust and support of this work is the catalyst that will spur our programs forward. Without you we simply could not accomplish this important work. Personally, I plan to harness the enormous volume of positive energy flowing into EAI to empower our vision for elephants.
