Conserving The Natural World
The National Geographic Society states, that “By engaging in sustainable tourism best practices, including environmentally-friendly operations and supporting education programs in local communities on the importance of elephant conservation while caring for a small herd of rescued elephants, they [Elephant Hills] are helping local villagers also understand that wild elephants are not something to be feared and that they have a conservation value which can help improve local livelihoods through conservation-based tourism.”
