Adopt an elephant

Through the WWF you can adopt an elephant quickly and easily online as a gift.

Adopt an elephant like Kiruba. The elephant Kiruba lives in Corbett National Park, in the Terai Arc lowlands of India. She has a son and a daughter, and is the dominant female in an extended family of more than 20 elephants. As the matriarch of the group she is relied upon to find food, water and safe habitat. Adopting this elephant can make a huge difference.

Adopting an elephant can really help. Asian elephant populations have decreased dramatically as their habitat is encroached upon by logging and agricultural clearance. Illegal and unsustained logging is a worldwide problem destroying nature, damaging communities and distorting trade. Around half of the world's original forests have now disappeared, and they are still being removed far faster than they are being replaced.

From just £2.50 a month you can adopt an elephant like Kiruba. Your support will help WWF to safeguard the future of wild elephants, and build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature.

When you adopt an elephant you get a special pack and updates on how your elephant is doing.
