Palm oil plantations are increasingly encroaching on the elephants' paths forcing them to enter the farmland of local communities. Many locals make a living from farming, so the subsequent destruction of their crops can be devastating.

 

 

Your donation:

 

Your adoption will help WWF work to better protect and manage key elephant habitat while enabling agriculture, forestry and other forms of land-use in a clearly planned and sustainable manner.

It's the perfect gift – with a pygmy elephant cuddly toy and a special adoption gift pack, including adoption certificate and stunning pygmy elephant portrait. 

 

You can choose this gift pack to be sent directly to the recipient or you can receive it to give to them yourself.

Bod Thai represents all the endangered pygmy elephants we help. All our pygmy elephant adopters "adopt" Bod Thai so that we can share her ongoing story with you. We hope that by following Bod Thai’s progress in Borneo you can experience the challenges and successes involved in conserving this most beautiful and shy creature.

 

All donations of $2 or more to WWF-Australia are tax-deductible. For your convenience, we will send you one receipt at the end of the financial year, for the total amount of your tax-deductible donations. If your adoption includes a plush toy, the $15 cost for the toy is not tax-deductible.
