What we've done already.
Since 2014, Stand Up 4 Elephants has been bringing a progressive and ethically responsible approach regarding improving the conditions of the captive elephants in Nepal.
End of 2018, we started the construction of the SU4E HOME, a place built as an model of what is possible with minimal investment to manage elephants in a kinder way.
Thanks to our long term partners Le Pal Nature Foundation, Brabant Walloon and the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, we were able to welcome our first rescue Eva at the end of 2019 and Lhamo at the end of 2020.
The SU4E HOME welcomes the caretakers of each rescued elephant, they are they key to the success. Happy mahouts = Happy elephants !
The SU4E HOME is made up of a shelter for elephants open to an enclosure of about 1 hectare including a large elephant swimming pool. On the human side, the mahouts each have an individual room, a large common kitchen and showers.
