Kids Making a Difference
We know that elephants are one of the most intelligent, sensitive, empathetic animals on our planet. Just like us, they have ideas and desires. Just like us, they form strong family bonds and lifelong friendships. Just like us, they deserve freedom. Freedom to explore. Freedom to make friends. Freedom to choose what they do with their bodies.
We began Children Helping Elephants to try to help Chai and Bamboo, the two Woodland Park Zoo elephants in Seattle, WA, get to a sanctuary. In less than a month, the children of our movement managed to shift the community conversation with their advocacy. City leaders began work on legislation, adults and kids all over the region started paying closer attention and learning about what elephants need to be healthy and the threats they face in the wild. But on April 15, 2015, the zoo rushed Chai and Bamboo out of Seattle. We were not able to stop the elephants from being moved, but we were successful in drawing attention to the problems of elephants in captivity. And we are not about to give up on helping our beloved elephants.
Children Helping Elephants wants to start working with children everywhere to help elephants all over the world. We need the help of everyone who cares. Can you help?
Our mission is to help elephants while also empowering children to create positive change in the world.
