At HERD (Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development), we believe that every elephant needs a herd. Our mission is to rehabilitate elephants orphaned or displaced due to human-elephant conflict and, ultimately, integrate them into a new and accepting herd. To do so successfully, we need sufficient funding.

We rely on donations to fund our work, and elephant fundraising through MySchool and Benevity offers the ideal third-party platform for anyone to help us raise money.
