The Elephant Project
Kristina McKean has felt a deeply rooted kinship with animals for as long as she can remember. When she traveled through Thailand and witnessed baby elephants on the streets of Bangkok being exploited for money, she was devastated. Later, back in the U.S., she became further outraged at the treatment of elephants in the circus, unable to comprehend how animal abuse could be construed as entertainment in any way.
After years spent signing petitions, protesting circuses, and creating social media campaigns to help spread awareness surrounding the mistreatment of elephants, Kristina felt propelled to do more. The welfare of elephants has become her passion and life quest. In creating The Elephant Project, she is now able to make a significant contribution to saving elephants. Sales of the specially created stuffed animals go directly to organizations that are helping to end the poaching crisis, as well as distributed to elephant sanctuaries in the United States and abroad.
Kiki, whose name means 'new life' is first in the charming collection. Tembo, meaning 'elephant' in Swahili, is the newest addition to The Elephant Project that will soon expand to include others.
100% of net proceeds from your purchase of Kiki and Tembo go to various organizations that help aid in fighting the poaching crisis and also provide care to injured, abandoned, orphaned, and abused elephants. Currently, these organizations include: The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Elephant Nature Park In Thailand, The Elephant Cooperation. To learn more, check out: www.theelephantproject.com
