"Thank you for visiting H-ELP. This website explains our adaptation of scientific, evidence-based methods to elephant training. We know it improves the welfare of captive and working elephants and are proud to make this contribution as a not-for-profit organisation. Through our programs, H-ELP currently contributes to the development, welfare and safety of elephant handlers and trainers across India, Laos, Thailand and Myanmar."
After a successful pilot program in Nepal, we now have 7 ongoing programs across South East Asia working with the largest owners of captive elephants. Together our programs enhance the welfare of approximately 5000 elephants.
