Who we are

The Pangea Trust is an independent non-profit organisation, registered in the UK and Portugal

Why we exist

 Over 600 elephants are currently held in captivity across Europe. Circuses, zoos, and governments wishing to rehome their resident elephants desperately need a solution.

What we do

  • Give sanctuary to any elephant in Europe in need of rescue or rehabilitation, demonstrably improving the lives of elephants through giving them choice and freedom in an expansive, natural habitat.
  • Improve the environmental health of the reserve for the benefit of elephants and native wildlife.
  • Support the conservation of wild elephants in Africa and Asia, the protection of the ecosystems of which they are part, and all efforts that encourage the peaceful co-existence of people and nature.
