Why should I adopt an elephant?

So you are supporting the future of nature and people in Africa!
Why should I adopt an elephant while the animals are culled
because of overpopulation?
If the elephants would have the same space that they used to have, there would be no problem at all. But people are using more and more land that used to belong to wildlife. This leads to overpopulation of elephants in different areas in Southern Africa. So control of the elephant population is necessary. As humans created this problem, they should take the responsibility to solve this in a decent way, and not just by culling the elephants.
By adopting an elephant with GoodFund, you are helping the Peace Parks Foundation to establish crossborder Peace Parks which increases the space for the animals. Within these Peace Parks, elephants are also translocated from crowded places in the park to other ‘virgin’ parts where elephants have been chased or killed before.
This alone is of course not the solution of this problem. But it
is a decent solution to save the elephants, and to create peace
between man and nature.
