elephant camp movement

Asian Captive Elephant Standards (ACES) is an independent enterprise providing elephant camps with the methodology, guidance and on-site support to ensure all captive elephants are receiving the highest level of welfare possible. We work with camps, governments, communities and industry bodies to provide the best outcomes for elephants under human care. 


Obtaining ACES certification allows you to highlight to visitors the advanced elephant welfare standards at your camp.


All our staff are technical experts in elephant camp management, international auditing and elephant conservation. You will be provided with the best support and assistance throughout the assessment process and beyond.
