Elephant populations around the world are dwindling due to human encroachment. Asian elephants are especially vulnerable, with only about 35,000 left in the entire world. Elephants will very likely go extinct in Vietnam within the next decade. These pillars of wisdom and strength need our help if they are to survive. The Preserve and Hill Country Elephant Preserve are committed to doing their part to help save elephants from extinction.
Your tax deductible donation to the Hill Country Elephant Preserve, a non-profit 501 (c) (3), helps support five elephants and their care into the future, as well as educational programs that benefit school children, the mental and physically challenged, veterinary students and other groups and organizations.
