Help HERD, South Africa’s First Elephant Orphanage

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

DONATE TO HERD

By donating, you help us to continue the work we do at HERD, as we rely on public funding. Every penny counts and is so appreciated, and no contribution is ever too small. Only South African donors may qualify for a tax exemption certificate.

DONATE VIA GLOBAL GIVING

GlobalGiving is a fundraising platform that we work with in the USA where donations from the USA qualify for tax exemption. UK taxpayers paying in GBP are eligible for Gift Aid too.

FOSTER AN ELEPHANT

Join our Foster Family and become a proud foster parent to your favourite elephant/s. By fostering, you help us provide your chosen elephant with continued exceptional elephant care. Select a membership that best suits you here.

FOSTER LAMMIE OR NUNGU

Foster Lammie the Legend or Nungu, are our much-loved sheep companions for baby elephants at the orphanage. They take on the roles of woolly surrogate mothers and provide orphans with plenty of love, friendship, and support

GIFT – A FOSTER MEMBERSHIP


Foster an elephant as a heartfelt gift for a loved one, giving them the joy of supporting an elephant and the world of elephant conservation – whether for a birthday, a special holiday like Christmas, or an important event such as an anniversary, a birth or a wedding. Your loved one will receive a certificate and email updates on their fostered elephant.
