Discover the world of Babile
Giving the elephants a future outside history books.
A massive 7,000 km2 area in Ethiopia, the Babile Elephant Sanctuary is one of the last strongholds of elephant families in the Horn of Africa. It was created in 1970 to offer a safe haven for elephants with a team of local Rangers patrolling the area and watching over the wild animals.
Over recent years, the number of illegal elephant killings has skyrocketed across Africa. At the current rate, entire populations could be wiped out in just a few years. Born Free’s work makes the difference between life and death for these animals, and the charity needs our continued support.
This is where you come in. Together, Hu2 and YOU protect Babile elephants. Our support enables Born Free and their partners EWCA, the Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority, to source better equipment, improve law enforcement strategies and give training to local Rangers, among many other things. Together, we can defend this oasis where wild elephants still roam free.
