ABOUT THE COMPANY
Green America Certified — Bronze
Fair Trade Federation Member
Like many young people, Karl Wald always knew that he wanted to make a difference in the world. A trip to Sri Lanka and a chance meeting with a paper maker named Thusitha Ranasinghe turned out to be life-changing for Karl — and for the elephants.
Karl completed his post-doctorate studies at the USDA in 2004. In 2005, he arrived in Sri Lanka to shadow an elephant veterinarian. Dr. Wald also taught English classes. It was through his conversations with Thusitha that he was given a wonderful insight, which led him to become the founder of Mr. Ellie Pooh, LLC.
Both men, as it happened, had a love of animals and concern for the environment. Soon the two friends found themselves looking for a way to save the elephants in Sri Lanka. Elephants naturally are not favored as neighbors by farmers, who, in turn are shrinking the elephants’ habitat. When elephants trample and destroy valued crops, they are often shot and killed. Karl and Thusitha believe that providing sustainable jobs gives value to elephants.
While it may not completely resolve the human-elephant conflict in Sri Lanka, Ellie Pooh is already going a long way toward raising the tolerance of farmers toward the elephants — by actually compensating them for damage to their crops. For this reason the elephant is seen more as an economic asset and less as a nuisance or threat. The people will not want to see the elephant disappear from their midst, and Ellie Pooh paper plays an important role in the saving the population of Asian elephants in Sri Lanka.
