        • Land of a Million Elephants

          For 5,000 years, the mahout and his elephant have lived together in perfect harmony. But the economic pressures of the modern world, has shifted the balance. In Laos, the domesticated elephants are involved in the logging industry, effectively destroying their own habitat. This strenuous work of shifting heavy logs means that the elephant is unable to breed and for every elephant born in Laos, there are five that die. For the country once traditionally named the ‘land of a million elephants’ only 1,000 remain. It is predicted, by 2060, the elephants of Laos will be extinct. “Land of a million elephants” is a one-hour Natural History documentary, which tells this remarkable story. A trailer for the documentary has recently been released with an official website expected to go live in January, 2012. The project is currently seeking further funding for a second film shoot in Laos and ultimately seeks to raise awareness on the issue and support the work of ElefantAsia. Founder/Writer/Director: Carly Maple Executive Producer: Kent Smith Producer: Matt Byrne Cinematographer: Aaron Gully Initially funded by Screen Australia, the South Australian Film Corporation, the KOJO Creative Incubator and Carly Maple.

          • The Elephant Story is Ours to Change!


            from Heart of Ganesh / Added

            IT’S TIME TO QUESTION THE STORY, KNOWING THE ENDING IS OURS TO CHANGE. Throughout history and across cultures, elephants have been in our stories, in our myths, and in our hearts. Symbolic of many faiths and of strongly held beliefs, we hold them so dear and yet don’t consider the cost. It’s past time to question cultural norms and define the legacy we seek to leave behind. One by one we can turn it around, leaving a legacy of kindness, wonder, and awe. Please help us educate and empower others to take compassionate action for elephants, and for people, around the world. Please don't turn away. Start the conversation, and one by one we can turn it around, for we are the ones, we are we are...

                  www.elephantfamily.org/donate On 23rd of April this year Asia’s elephants lost their greatest champion. Mark Shand, Elephant Family’s figurehead lived an extraordinary life and spent much of it making huge strides for his beloved elephants – often though the force of his charismatic personality. Mark’s passion for the Asian elephant was ignited in 1988 when, on a whim, he rescued a begging elephant in India and wrote a book. Mark fell in love with his elephant and spent the last 27 years of his life repeating the same message; that the Asian elephant is endangered and that, in the past 100 years 90% had been wiped out. As a supporter of Elephant Family you have been playing a major role in the fate of the Asian elephant. Like you, Mark knew that the habitat of the Asian elephant was disappearing at a terrifying rate and that it is critical to keep pace with the destruction. Today just 5% remains which must be protected. Before he died he was determined to save the elephants of Assam, India by reconnecting their forests and building safe new homes for the poor subsistence farmers who are also struggling to survive alongside wild, hungry and stressed herds. This project holds the key for 1,700 endangered elephants and was his final wish. To Mark, elephants were adventure. They were imagination. They were masterpieces of nature. A world without them was unthinkable which is why he drove himself so hard to save them. This project needs £823,000 and thanks to incredible support so far, half of the funds have already been raised. With your help we can get there. Be part of Mark’s legacy by donating today. www.elephantfamily.org/donate With footage from Ecostorm
