Humane treatment of captive elephants


World Animal Protection wholeheartedly welcomes the efforts of MOEF (Ministry of Environment and Forests Project Elephant journal) and all associated organisations in promoting the humane treatment of captive elephants. The directive of the Forest Department of Rajasthan to retire nineteen sick elephants from rides in Amer fort in February 2021 is also a positive step forward. World Animal Protection also appreciates the efforts made by the Government to bring compassionate care to captive elephants and enhance protection for wild elephants as stated in the Gajah report published in 2010.
