OonBoon's story

At just six weeks after being torn away from her mother, OonBoon endured the torturous training of ‘the crush’. Instead of freely roaming the forests and grasslands with her mother by her side in the wild, OonBoon was restrained in the ‘crush’ box with ropes and forced to endure two brutal sessions of beatings every day to make her submissive for tourists. 

Once out of the ‘crush’ box, she was pulled around the local village to override her natural instincts and get her used to noises from traffic, humans, and other animals. Despite her terror, she quickly discovered that resistance leads to beatings from bull hooks, sticks and even nails – tools that she has learned to fear for the rest of her life. 

No elephant should suffer the way OonBoon has. When you make a donation today, it will be matched to help end this cruelty, while helping to care for and rehabilitate formerly abused elephants. 

Your impact

With every dollar you give, you will help solve the root causes of animal suffering and influence others to improve animals’ lives because protecting animals means protecting the world.

For more than 50 years, World Animal Protection has helped animals. From liberating wildlife from cruel exploitation to moving corporations to adopt better animal welfare in their supply chains to providing funding to sanctuaries to feed and care for rescued animals like elephants.
