Fundraising Projects

AERU staff and our volunteers run several projects to raise extra funds for our research initiatives. Our fundraising projects include reusing elephant dung to create souvenirs, and upcycling rubber into elephant keyrings, and jewellery. Additional AERU branded merchandise is also available for purchase. New projects are also being developed. All of our items are available through the Curio Shop on Knysna Elephant Park.

Rubber Ellies

Old bicycle tubing is upcycled through the efforts of our volunteers who are taught how to make miniature rubber elephants as keychain or earring ornaments.

Pinch of poop dung jars

Our dung jars are a little memory of each individual elephant, easy to bring back home. It is the perfect eccentric souvenir and by far our biggest seller!
