We will never be able to fully express just how grateful we are for every single one of our supporters. We truly appreciate every selfless action, every kind comment, and every donation of every size. There are so many different people and organisations who have contributed to HERD and helped us to care for the elephants, the surrounding environment, and the local community. We would not have made it to where we are today without all of these supporters – our extended HERD family. We sincerely thank each and every one of you.

This month, we would like to thank the people and organisations below for their recent and ongoing support.

  1. HERD is so worthy of the support! Obviously, the herd has touched the heart of so many as well as HERD’s other projects too. I’ll always donate when I can. A bunch of little donations quickly add up and go a long way.

  2. I love your blogs! I so enjoy reading about all things “HERD”.. Many blessings to you Adine and your magnificent team!!❤️🐘❤️

Help Save Our Vulnerable Gentle Giants

We rely on incredible people like you to keep us going. Every cent counts, and no contribution is too small. HERD relies on public funding to cover the operational costs to care for and support elephant orphans and the rescued herd, so we really appreciate your support.
