Accessibility Policy

Accessibility Statement

This is an accessibility statement from Save the Elephants. We want everyone who visits the Save the Elephants website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

Measures to support accessibility

To help us make the Save the Elephants website a positive place for everyone we have taken the following measures to ensure accessibility of Save the Elephants:

  • Include accessibility throughout our internal policies.
  • Assign clear accessibility goals and responsibilities.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Save the Elephants is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Additional accessibility considerations

Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria:

Some of our videos are in the local language but we have provided subtitles in such cases.

Moving forward most of our videos will have closed captions.


We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of Save the Elephants. We’ve worked hard on the Save the Elephants website and believe we’ve achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems or encounter accessibility barriers on Save the Elephants, please get in touch.

We try to respond to feedback within 1 Business day.
