Woburn Safari Park
Elephant Keepers at Bedfordshire’s Woburn Safari Park invite guests to join the park’s beautiful herd of endangered Asian elephants for a special fundraising weekend (10th & 11th August) in aid of the International Elephant Foundation.
It is estimated that there are only 7,000 African elephants and 25,000 Asian elephants remaining in the wild and the appreciation weekend at Woburn will include lots of exciting games, talks and demonstrations to help educate the public about the plight of these species in the wild. As part of the special activities, visitors can have their photo taken with one of the majestic adult elephants under the supervision of a keeper. Up to eight people can be in any one picture requiring a donation of just £5 per person.
All proceeds will go to the International Elephant Foundation, raising money for Elephant Endotheliotrophic Herpes Virus (EEHV), a disease which can be fatal to Asian elephants.
Woburn is home to five park ambassador Asian elephants Chandrika, Damini, Yu Zin, Raja and adorable calf Tarli. The International Elephant Foundation supports and operates in situ elephant conservation in both Africa and Asia, funding scientific research and education programmes.
