Elephants are sacred in the cultures of Asia - through film, social media, science and spiritual understanding, we serve as a channel to bridge modern concepts with old traditions. Our goal is to provide support for the protection of elephants and their wild habitats.
We are monitoring the plight of this endangered species and working as a liaison between farmers, villagers, DWC, local conservationists and the veterinarians to develop sustainable management practices.
We are a group of impassioned individuals, including volunteer filmmakers, veterinarians, wildlife biologist, naturalists and sustainable scientists.
ElephantsNOW.org provides a platform for this diverse group to apply their unique skill sets, and through collaborative spirit, we are empowered to improve the welfare of elephants by empowering the communities that live alongside of them with the awareness and tools to do so.

You can tell an Asian Elephant apart from an African Elephant by their pink patched skin painted with freckles. a rainbow arch-shaped back, much smaller ears, and of course their Heart-shaped head and Heart-tipped trunk.
