Built with the distinct vision to help the magnificent Asiatic elephant live and flourish in abundance, Sri. V. Shaji opened Kerala’s first ethical animal sanctuary in Kollam district Kerala; with our first elephant a cow named Girija being given to us by the founder's father Sri. G. Vishwambharan. As a nature enthusiast and a devout follower of Lord Ganesha, building a safe haven for elephants was his dream. The idea of constructing an eco-friendly environment for elephants budded from the alarming fact that the population of Asian elephants had declined drastically over the years. Elephants are poached for their ivory tusks and the poachers behind this illicit ivory trade were the primary reason behind the dwindling elephant population. Here at Kaveri Elephant Park, we rear around twenty elephants.
Our mission is to build a natural ecosystem that is committed to providing the utmost care and assistance to India’s captive elephant population. We also aim to arrange innovative and educational ecotourism activities, through which we rescue, rehabilitate and rear the planet’s smartest species, elephants. Our flagship project, Kaveri Elephant Park is set to work towards achieving the following goals:
We envision creating a leading conservation community that focuses on raising awareness on various threats faced by elephants and facilitate the benefits of various international organizations through innovative education programs.
