About us

Following 150 years of misplanning in European elephant husbandry, ELEFANTEN-SCHUTZ EUROPA e.V. is committed to enabling the wild animals that elephants are to lead worthy lives in captivity where their natural behavioural needs are met as far as possible.  

ELEFANTEN-SCHUTZ EUROPA e.V. primarily concentrates on elephants kept in zoos and circuses as well as on elephant-related accidents.
