Who are we?

APEEL was born out of an urgent need to save and protect a vital yet endangered ecosystem of a species that has been abused and is threatened with extinction in the short term: The Asian elephant. We also support and assist the rehabilitation of elephants in their natural environment after years of hardship.

Our engagements

We want to take action, but also to make the public aware of the urgency of the situation and the need to safeguard this ecosystem, and thus convince them to actively support us in its protection. Protecting the environment of Asian elephants is essential for their survival, and is only possible by involving the efforts of the local population.

Intervention in the primary school of Quarouble, in the North.

18th January 2022

We spent the day meeting all the pupils of the primary school of Quarouble in the North, presenting our project, and introducing them to Laos: its biodiversity and its people through videos and a Q&A session with Wendy. All this was made possible thanks to Marie Petit, the headmistress of the school, who has been following the Mekong Elephant Park with her class for several months now.
