Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Elephant Transit Home

One orphan will drink 40 pints of milk a day!

The Elephant Transit Home in Sri Lanka , run by the Department of Wildlife Conservation,  rescues orphan elephants and returns them to the wild when they are ready, providing a humane alternative to taking abandoned animals into permanent captivity. 

Born Free supports the general running of the facility and helps make sure the orphans receive the milk, care and medical attention they need.  With the help of sponsors including and Land Rover we have provided the site with life-saving facilities and equipment such as a hospital and intensive care centre, an elephant ambulance and a kitchen.  We have also funded research on the behaviour of the orphans after release, radio collars to assist in monitoring them, and basic equipment for the staff at the centre from Wellington boots to mosquito nets.
