Your support enables us to deploy teams of researchers to places to implement the methodology that measures the level of animal care at places keeping elephants in captive environments.
Why the need?
There are more than 120 elephants in captivity in South Africa, and there is zero formal or official way to assess, or objectively measure the level of care they receive.
Conservation Guardians, IN COLLABORATION WITH PADOVA UNIVERSITY (ITALY), HAS DEVELOPED AN animal care score (ACS) THAT SCIENTIFICALLY MEASURES THE LEVEL OF CARE WILD ANIMALS RECEIVE IN CAPTIVITY. WE HAVE DEVELOPED THIS METHOD OF MEASURING ANIMAL CARE OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS.
