"On 1st September 2002, under the patronage of the Rajmata of Jaipur and Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, Elephant Family was officially registered and a new charity was born... Victims of the battle for space between humans, several significant elephants stole the hearts of our co-founders, evoking the need to turn the situation around. Mark Shand rode his elephant Tara across India, Dugal Muller fell under the spell of orphaned elephant Jojo, Robin Russell, from a family of conservationists, initiated the rescue of three captive elephant youngsters from an uncertain future in India and had them flown to a secure and happy life in the broad acres at Woburn. Caroline Casey embarked on her epic journey across south India on an elephant named Kanchi and finally Nicholas Claxton, joining in 2002, and having been married on an elephant in India , has used the force of his award winning filmmaking to highlight issues in wildlife conservation and the environment."
