Very soon we will be saying goodbye to 2015 and we want to go out with a BANG!
Looking back over this past year, we know that Asian Elephant Support would not have been able to make such an impact without your support.  From donating much needed equipment and tools to mahouts around Asia to providing desperately needed veterinary care for elephants like Jun in Vietnam, your gifts have allowed us to truly make a difference for elephants in Asian range countries. 
The El Nino weather pattern has wreaked havoc all over the globe this past year including in Asia. Severe drought and forest fires in the Way Kambas National Park in Sumatra, Indonesia threatened to deplete the food source for the Conservation Response Unit elephants living in the park.   As the drought continued, AES was able to step up and provide the elephants with nutritional supplements and food including banana trees, corn, and coconut palm leaves.  The nutritional supplements include green beans, corn grit, brown sugar, salt, mineral powder, rice bran and water. Typically, the mahouts only prepare these supplements twice a week, but as a result of the extreme drought conditions, these are prepared twice a day. Your gifts also allowed us to donate enough money to dig wells to provide water for the elephants and their human caretakers.  These elephants are an important part of the conservation of wild elephants in and around the park. With their mahouts, they patrol the forest looking for illegal wildlife activity, monitor the wild elephant populations, and help mitigate human-elephant conflict.  With your generosity, we were able to help these elephants stay healthy and happy!
It’s not too late to make your 2015 tax deductible donation and join us in our effort to support the care and conservation of elephants in Asian range countries. Simply go to our website and make a secure donation through PayPal.
2015 will be ending soon so don’t wait! Make your donation today and help us, help elephants.

 
Best wishes and Happy New Year!

P.S.  With your help, we look forward to a rewarding and successful 2016!
