i miss my friends 🐘

Celebrating National Zookeeper Week with Mary. I am proud to work among an amazing group of people both, in the past, present and future who give their love, passion, blood, sweat and tears for the animals in their care. I have the best job in the world! #elephant #elephants #asianelephant #savetheelephants #bekindtoelephants #elephantconservation #zoo #zookeeper #zookreeper #sandiegozoo #elephantkeeper #nationalzookeeperweek2018 #nzkw2018 #california #cali #bestofcalifornia #sandiego #bestofsandiego #bestoftheday #elephantsofinstagram #bestjobever #lovemyjob #mary #oldbetty #celebrate #wednesdaywisdom #trunkup #wildlifeconservation #aazk #zoophotography

It was a privilege spending the day at Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai 🇹🇭 This natural sanctuary tucked in Northern Thailand rescues, protects, and cares for mistreated elephants from the tourism and logging industries. The rescued elephants live in peace, harmony and love. Some of the girls have broken hips, broken legs, a few are blind, you can see where they were beaten and tortured in their previous life before being rescued by Elephant Nature Park. Some are handicap but the love in their new home is so strong and contagious. We Must Save All Elephants. Elephants love to naturally bathe themselves in the river and play in the mud. They do not need tourists help to take a bath. I used to want to ride an elephant and get that perfect photo and in fact I did last time I was in Thailand in 2011. I was uneducated and unaware the damage that I caused. I am embarrassed and feel guilty. It is so important that we pass the word on that riding them is wrong, artwork painted by elephants is wrong- do not buy it, elephants should not be in the circus, and elephants should not be begging for money in the streets. There are too many parks in Thailand that are unethical and running because of tourists are paying them. Please do your part in this fight! Elephants are very smart. They feel emotions just like us! They feel happiness, sadness, excitement, fear, and grief. They have good memories. They are on par with the human intelligence scale. Save the Elephants! When you go to Thailand visit Elephant Nature Park. They book out months in advance. Educate yourself and spread the word. Elephants play a key role in our ecosystem and we need them as much as they need us to treat them with respect. 🐘💚🐘

Oh what a magical day.

The sheer joy between an elephant and his mahout 😊
Was good to see the elephants weren’t commanded with sharp pikes but purely with words and affection. .
