To our supporters and elephant enthusiasts: EARS has recently been combined with its parent non-profit corporation, Monterey Zoological Society, also a Calif. 501(c)(3)non-profit corporation. This marriage enabled us to minimize redundancy and channel more valuable funding towards the elephants. We invite you to visit our www.montereyzoo.org website for more information on our efforts however we will maintain this site also as reminder to all of where we came from and where we will always continue to move towards...

Elephants of Africa Rescue Society is dedicated to supporting projects aimed at securing a safe habitat for wild, African animals and dedicated to providing a sanctuary for their captive cousins with a special focus on elephants.

 We believe that by educating the public about the problems facing both captive and wild animals we can increase public awareness and support.
