Adopting an elephant is a gift that makes a valuable and tangible difference on the ground. While we do the work in the field, you can do your part at home, in the spirit of love.

When you become a foster parent, you’re contributing to the care of your adopted elephant. You’re helping us to provide your adopted elephant with everything they need to be healthy and happy.

Foster parents will receive an adoption certificate and email updates on their adopted elephant, as well as other special benefits.

PLEASE NOTE: The adoption certificate will be sent to your specified email address within one to two working days. If you’re adopting an elephant or sheep as a gift for someone and prefer not to have the adoption certificate emailed to them directly, you can either leave the ‘Email Address of Honoree’ field blank or enter your own email address instead. We will then send the adoption certificate to your email address.
