Investing in the Future of Postgres – and The Lives of 150 Orphaned Elephants

May 16, 2024

In a nod to PostgreSQL's iconic mascot, EDB has partnered with the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to adopt 150 orphaned elephants, supporting their rehabilitation in Kenya and underscoring a commitment to both wildlife and open-source innovation

The elephant: a cultural symbol around the world of wisdom and endurance, strength and memory. The elephant has been the beloved symbol of Postgres for the past 25 years and counting, and one EDB has been proud to carry throughout our history of building the best possible Postgres database for enterprises. 

As we move forward in our next evolution as the leading Postgres and AI data platform, our brand logo evolves too. Though our mark no longer portrays the elephant, we remain dedicated to Postgres now more than ever. Just as the elephant continues as the symbol of Postgres, EDB continues our commitment to Postgres. That’s why we’ve made an investment to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an orphan elephant rescue and wildlife rehabilitation program in Kenya. As one of Africa’s oldest wildlife charities, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a pioneer in the conservation and protection of wildlife. EDB’s commitment supports 150 elephants for three years across the period of their care at the center, ensuring a strong and healthy future for these powerful and majestic beings.

At EDB, we believe in the potential of Postgres to make a real impact not only for technological and economic advancements but also for environmental protection and the care of our planet. From elephant sanctuaries to coral reef conservation and water security, at EDB we know the positive impact Postgres can have on our most important natural resources, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to unleash the power of Postgres for the AI generation.
