One of Namibia’s last remaining free-roaming elephant herds is in desperate trouble. Drought is forcing them to move from a safe haven to areas where they risk being shot. 20 elephants, who have taken refuge on a 20,000-acre (8,000-hectare) family farm, are living on borrowed time. This elephant family needs your help!
PAL received an anguished call from animal lovers, in the remote Kunene region of Namibia where the elephants live. Their home, a huge farm, is the only one in the area that does not permit hunting. As long as the elephants stay on the farm, they are safe – but if they move, they risk death.
The elephants have lived on the farm for 20 years and have learned that if they wander too far, death awaits, so they stay. Until recently, they have been thriving, and several babies have recently been born. Now, disaster has struck. A severe drought has dried up waterholes and farm dams; there is virtually no water left. This means that the elephants must either die of thirst or risk being killed if they go elsewhere to seek water.
A little bit of money will save 20 elephant lives!
With your help, we have promised to provide emergency aid to drill a borehole and repair the dam on the farm that will provide water for the elephant family and save their lives.
But time is running out – we must act quickly as only one week’s worth of water remains.
Namibia is a hot, dry country, and elephants need to drink large quantities of water every day. Can you imagine their desperation as they wander into dangerous areas, anxious to protect their calves and quench their thirst?
If we don’t act right now, this fragile elephant family faces disaster and death!
Elephants are intelligent, social creatures who depend on tight-knit family bonds. If one dies, or the herd is split up or relocated, it results in massive torment and suffering for each elephant. This has disastrous long-term impacts on the wellbeing and survival of each elephant.
Namibia’s elephants are so severely under pressure that we cannot miss a chance to give a family of 20 of these amazing creatures the chance of continuing to live in the wild without being shot.
Africa has already lost 60% of its elephants to ivory poaching, and numbers are continuing to crash. If we don’t act now to save wild elephant populations, there will soon be none left.
Saving animals and the planet,

P.S. Elephant-sized donations would be truly welcomed because one elephant drinks 53 gallons (200 liters) of water a day – but every donation, no matter how large or small, will help. To put this into context, that’s like having to fill the tank of your car every day! Fortunately, water is not yet as expensive as fuel. Please, be as generous as you can today!
Just one week left to save this elephant family from death!
You can count on me to help fund the lifesaving borehole and dam urgently needed so the family of 20 elephants doesn’t face death by thirst – or have to risk their lives by searching for water in hunting territory. I understand that only one week’s supply of water remains – so time is of the essence. The borehole needs to be drilled RIGHT NOW. I am rushing what I can today to help save this precious elephant family!
