Knysna Elephant Park | 60kW Solar Garden | Knysna, South Africa

Looking after the largest land mammals on Earth takes a lot of energy, so let's make it solar energy!

Since 1994, The Knysna Elephant Park has housed and cared for over 40 orphaned African elephants, including relocated animals, orphaned calves, elephants rescued from culls and ex-circus animals. Some have become part of the resident herd, others have moved onto other reserves and facilities in the Western and Eastern Cape, depending on their personalities, bonds with other animals and welfare needs.

By going solar through The Sun Exchange the park will be able to put more of their financial resources towards the attractions and into animal welfare rather than buying dirty and expensive fossil fuel based energy from the grid.

Each solar cell you buy will cut the park's energy bills by 10% and earn you 20 years of income backed by the power of the sun. If you place an order and the crowd-sale is not successful you will receive back your payment in full.
