What is the money used for
At HUG ELEPHANTS, the money raised from visits, volunteers, merchandise and donations is primarily used for elephant rescue, food, veterinary care, infrastructure and land. This allows us to constantly be growing and expanding the capacity of our sanctuary for future elephants. Some of the money is also designated to compensate the local owners of the elephants so they let us continue to take care of them, instead of making them work. Some of the income gets saved so in the future we will be able to purchase our own elephants and they can live forever, free and happy at HUG ELEPHANT.
