A new platform, all dedicated to elephants, and a collaboration between Global Elephant Care and AnimalConcepts, is launching soon!
Coming from a culture of care and compassion and combining the most up to date scientific literature and best practices, we strive to improve standards and promote optimal wellbeing for elephants in all types of human care globally.
"Gerry & Sabrina trumpet in excitement about this new platform for elephants and peoples around the world!" 🐘 💚 🐘
Promoting positive wellbeing and flourishing is at the core of what contemporary zoos, sanctuaries and all other facilities caring for elephants strive for. The aim of this platform is to provide a progressive, safe, and active space for all people involved in caring for elephants anywhere.
Through this online continued education platform, both individuals and organisations can find support, information, and practical resources related to all aspects of elephant care and wellbeing. Participants will find guidance and inspiration on many different topics such as facility design, social life, nutrition, and training, to practical day-to-day elephant care aspects.
“Global Elephant Care is proud to collaborate with AnimalConcepts on creating this platform where science and practical application will be the key components to creating optimal elephant wellbeing”, says Gerry Creighton, CEO of Global Elephant Care.
This platform for animal care professionals from all backgrounds and related professions and domains (including curators, veterinarians, directors, vet nurses/technicians, volunteers, researchers, students, and policymakers) in zoos, sanctuaries and wildlife centres, and all others with an interest in elephants is welcome!
“Gerry and I have connected on animal care and wellbeing topics for over 2 decades! Through conferences, on location at Dublin Zoo, when both of us were invited to speak about animal wellbeing at a symposium on laboratory animals, and now for animals in the City of Dublin. We are always sharing and learning and thinking about how together we can make a difference for elephants and other animals and the people who care for them. I am beyond delighted that Global Elephant Care and AnimalConcepts, and amazing collaborators teams & experts – it does take a village! - are uniting for elephants everywhere”, says Sabrina Brando, CEO of AnimalConcepts.
Get support, opportunities for continued education, & practical resources to promote the flourishing of elephants everywhere!
The platform will officially launch on 30 September 2021 at 18:00 CET+2
