About Elephant Heroes

Raising Awareness and Trying to Provent Extinction!

 We are a group of kids that have been working for 2 years on a campaign to help save African and Asian elephants from going extinct. Our goals are to educate people about the devastating problems these amazing animals are facing and try to fundraise money that we then send to elephant sanctuaries in both Africa and Thailand that have been working for years to provide safe homes for abandoned, tortured and injured elephants.
 
Through help from family and community we are trying to make a big impact on our world. We have learned in school and at home to stand up for what we believe in and to dream big. Join us on our journey!
