Introduction to The Foundation

The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation was set up primarily to help elephants that cannot help themselves, those that find themselves through abuse or through circumstance unable to provide and maintain an income for themselves, their mahouts and their families.

In an ideal world all elephants would be wild and there would be no need to discuss elephants' work, until we reach that point the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation also aims to give and promote ethical work for those elephants and mahouts who are able.

We perform street rescues for elephants and, where possible, mahouts and families; we cooperate with the Government and other organisations in 'bigger picture' projects; we endeavour to ensure that nett good is done and that our actions in helping one elephant do not adversely effect others we may not be concentrating on.
