 The growing numbers of orphans and displaced elephant calves in recent years, as a result of increasing numbers of poaching of elephant mothers as well as man vs. elephant land conflict, Adine Roode, MD and owner of Jabulani, took the step to build a dedicated elephant orphanage to provide a unique adoptive family structure for baby elephants in need. It is our mission through HERD (Hoedspruit Elephant Rehabilitation and Development) to care for and rehabilitate these orphaned elephants, to give them a new family, and a second chance of life with another herd. 

As South Africa's first dedicated elephant orphanage, our purpose is to ensure that we have the optimal environment to care for the growing numbers of orphaned or displaced elephants that are a result of increasing numbers of poaching of elephant mothers as well as man vs. elephant land conflict. Our primary goal is for every orphaned elephant that is brought into our care at HERD, to be rehabilitated and integrated into a stable and nurturing elephant herd that will provide them with the love and emotional security they need to survive.

Will you help us with our vision to create a more sustainable and safer environment for our elephants?

We rely on public funding to remain operational from month to month. Every cent counts, and there is no contribution too small.

Together, we can make the impact they deserve.
Thank you for your and support and for helping HERD!
