MOST RECENT

It is with sadness that we read the news of the death of Dame Daphne Sheldrick today. She was a powerful ally and champion of Africa’s elephants. Like our own founder, Mark Shand who championed Asia’s elephants, she leaves a strong legacy that will help protect this awesome species but we must all continue the fight. Where they have led we must follow. Where they were unafraid to speak up for the voiceless we must do the same. Our thoughts are with Daphne’s family - human and elephant. #elephants #gonebutneverforgotten #inthefootstepsofgiants #legendary #legacy 🐘

New rescue elephant from our founder, Lek Chailert:
Another life has been set free from work today. Her story has been known to us for some time now. More than 10 years ago, i met her and learned her story. We have tried to help her since that day, but the owner would not release her and she continued to carry tourists for many years since, even though I followed her with interest every year. A couple of years ago, Khun Nuna and i tried to win the heart of the owner to set her free but still the answer was no. A friend (Edith from Holland), before she passed away, would let me know about this poor girl who needed to be released from her burdens. Last week we heard that a trekking camp from the south came to talk to the owner and was going to buy her to work in the camp . Our team went to negotiate immediately.
Kanjana had both hind legs injured when she was young. Born captive, her mother worked in a logging camp. After work, the mahout would let the mother and child out to walk in the jungle. The mother would drag a chain while her baby walked free. During a walk, the young Kanjana fell into a hole after a fire had just burned the forest. Hot coals were still in the hole. She tried to escape, and witnesses say that her mother tried to help. Not until people noticed was she able to get out. Both back legs were badly burned and her right ankle broken. Though handicapped she still spent twenty years pulling logs until she was sold, and the last 20 years she has carried tourists. As of yesterday, her work days are over. She is free to be an elephant now.

As part of our research into questionable elephant “retirement homes” in the highly popular tourist destination of Thailand, ENN has found that the Royal Elephant Kraal Village (and its tourist center “Ayutthaya Elephant Palace” and non-profit “Elephantstay”) is claiming that their pregnant elephants give rides, often up until the day they give birth.
Not only is this morally questionable, ENN through our extensive research come upon a document, that we read through as a translated post, that in 2015, the government of Thailand passed the first animal protection law, which “forbids the use of any old, PREGNANT, lame or sick elephants used in trekking”. Elephantstay, however, claims, “giving rides to tourists is positive and enhances successful birth…rates”. They are referring to the working pregnant elephants. This organisation further claim that pregnant elephants giving rides allows them “to socialize and exercise”, that it is “important for [their] mental and physical well-being”, and that “elephants that do not work get bored, frustrated and physically out of condition”. We don't believe this statement is based on any scientific fact other than presenting an argument of strong persuasion to continue using her. Think the weight she is carrying on her back, plus her baby. She is not a mother, she is a commodity.
If you see any old, pregnant, lame or sick elephants being used for trekking or rides in Thailand, please contact the Thai authorities. Report this as you would in any country if you witnessed the mistreatment of an animal.
Please make wise choices when on holiday and support eco friendly elephant care facilities that simply DO NOT allow riding and bathing.
Their lives have been hard, give them peace.

From @enormouselephantrun - Did you know that elephants have over 40,000 muscles in their trunks alone? It can take calves awhile to learn how to handle them, but 18-month-old Emoli seems to be getting the hang of it!
