WHO ARE WE?

The Lao Elephant Initiative (LEI) was founded in January 2018 as a nonprofit, nonreligious, nonpolitical organization. Recognized as a State and Federal tax-exempt, publicly supported 501(c)(3) charitable organization, LEI maintains an office in Denver, CO, and currently supports elephant conservation projects in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic. 

We are working to ignite positive change for wild and captive Asian elephants.

 
OUR MISSION

The mission of Lao Elephant Initiative is to promote the wellbeing of Asian elephants through education, community partnership, and innovative conservation strategies.  

 

Our projects focus on a range of conservation and environmental initiatives, including our captive elephant welfare project, and our support of wild elephant populations in National Biodiversity Conservation Area (NBCA).
