FLOYD MAYWEATHER ATOP ELEPHANT IN PHUKET

Mayweather may be enjoying his retirement from his boxing career while holidaying in Phuket: but at what cost? Like it or not, celebrities' actions set examples to their followers.
Behaviour like this is very upsetting when even social media corporations are suggesting their users think before they post... https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/12/wildlife-watch-instagram-selfie-tourism-animal-welfare-crime/

NOSEY'S ABUSIVE OWNERS CHARGED WITH CRUELTY

After a lengthy court hearing on Friday, we start the week with some wonderful news. Nosey is to remain in the custody of The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee!! The courts are yet to decide Nosey's permanent fate.

Ex-owners Hugo Liebel and his wife have been arrested and charged with cruelty. Fingers crossed the owners' other animals, ponies, shall also be removed from their ownership and placed into a more appropriate sanctuary site.

HERD BONDING IN SURIN PROVINCE

Elephants are naturally and inherently social creatures. Wild elephants form strong family bonds from the day they are born, however "working" animals are often denied the ability to form such bonds. Natural behaviours are quashed and instincts can be prohibited.

How wonderful to, instead, see the forming of a herd, as shown at Elephant Homestay, Baan Khun Chaithong, Surin province, part of Save Elephant Foundation in Thailand. What a lovely start to the week!

WHY DO SANCTUARIES OFFER LIMITED INTERACTION?

Phuket Elephant Sanctuary has recently written an informative post on exactly why choosing NOT to offer bathing with the elephants benefits both us as visitors, and the elephants as residents! "Elephants absolutely love to bathe in water and play in the mud either on their own or with each other. To do this, they need space to splash, roll around, submerge, and cover themselves in mud. "Our guests stand on the bank, or sit quietly in any of our Observation Huts observing the elephants from a distance. Not only is it both educational and fascinating to watch elephants behaving naturally, guests are also able to take the most stunning photos and videos of very happy elephants; taking home memories to last a lifetime. "Please take a look through our website to see who we are, what we do, and why we do not offer bathing or mud bathing WITH our elephants:

GORGEOUS NOPPARAT

Just look at how the gorgeous little Nopparat is growing up at the Surin Project! Time has truly flown by as he is already one month old and no doubt due to be a trouble maker soon enough ;) Find out how you can meet this little tyke yourself:

DONALD TRUMP REVERSES BAN ON IMPORT OF AFRICAN ELEPHANT TROPHIES

In devastating news this week, Donald Trump self-servingly reversed the existing ban in the US on bringing back trophies of elephants slain in Africa.

Good news however is that the US Centre for Biological Diversity is proceeding with a law suit to counteract the reversal.

NOSEY IS HEADED TO SANCTUARY!!! One of the saddest elephants in the USA is finally on the move to freedom. This poor African elephant has been abused for years at the hands of her, now ex, owner. But all that changed yesterday when she was seized by Alabama authorities.
The Action for Nosey Now team has now confirmed that Nosey is heading to The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.
These cases are never simple and no doubt there will be a legal battle for her future but for now, Nosey's future is bright. ☺

REST IN PEACE, MOHAN

Our thoughts today are with the entire team at Wildlife S.O.S after the tragic loss of beautiful Mohan. After decades of neglect and abuse prior to his rescue, Mohan spent his last days experiencing freedom, compassion and love.
