ADOPT AN ELEPHANT

African elephants face a number of threats in the wild, edging them closer to extinction. From illegal killing for the ivory tradetrophy hunting and habitat destruction as human populations expand, to retaliatory killing for destroying crops – these factors have played a part in the overall decrease in elephant numbers.

ADOPTION PACK DELIVERY INFORMATION

We will process and send your order within 3 working days, and would normally expect it to arrive within 7 working days to addresses within the UK. All UK orders are sent via Royal Mail 2nd class delivery. Please allow 28 days for delivery on overseas orders.

Please note – we cannot hold orders for delivery on a specific date. We are now offering a digital adoption which means no packaging, minimal carbon footprint and maximum support for your adopted animal and Born Free’s projects. Delivered straight into your inbox.

For overseas orders, customs charges may be levied prior to delivery. We would suggest checking to see if these may apply before placing your order. Orders do not need to be signed for, but if you have requested the optional toy, the box won’t fit through the letterbox so you will need to be available to accept the delivery. A card will be left if you’re unavailable.

The adoption certificate can be personalised with the name of your choice, and delivery arranged to a separate address.
