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 (LEI) is to promote the wellbeing of both captive and wild Asian elephants through education, community partnerships, and innovative conservation strategies.  

 

 

MAKING THIS HAPPEN

Our work involves a range of conservation and environmental initiatives, including our captive elephant welfare project, and our support of wild elephant populations in a National Biodiversity Conservation Area (NBCA). LEI conducts projects and programs internally and also provides grants to organizations that are doing work compatible with our mission.
