Our Mission

Massachusetts for Elephants is dedicated to educating people about the devastating
perils facing elephant populations in Africa and Asia. We advocate for elephant species
protection, habitat conservation, and the sustainable co-existence of humans and non-
humans worldwide. This includes helping to improve the well-being and future of
elephants forced to entertain or perform for humans—and ending those practices
wherever possible. Read more
