Our beautiful Pailin gracefully wanders through her sanctuary home at Elephant Nature Park. She enjoys leisurely strolls to the nearby river, quenching her thirst and embracing each moment at her own serene pace. Pailin’s healing journey is ongoing, and we provide her with the space and care she requires for both physical and mental recovery.
Today, as RattanaKham, AuengKham, and HomNuan finished their bath in the river, they started to walk back. However, RattanaKham and AuengKham quickly realized their friend wasn’t with them. They stopped in their tracks, emitting low rumbles and trumpets to HomNuan, who promptly responded to their calls and rushed to her friends’ calls.
Pyi Mai & her mother were rescued from the elephant riding and show camp. She eventually found a best friend when little baby Chaba was rescued with her mother BunMa. Pyi Mai also found her super nanny with D-Max. She now lives happily with her small herd, surrounded by love and care.
Baby Sa Ngae and his mother Mho Jae are becoming more and more confident each day with the support of nanny SookSai. Watch as baby Sa Ngae explores the sanctuary, finding a new elephant enrichment toy which brings much joy and interest for the whole family!
We want to take a moment to express our deepest gratitude to Heather Anderson, a cherished long-time supporter of ours. Heather has transformed every wooden carving she purchases into a masterpiece, each bearing a design that mirrors the gentle, loving, and compassionate spirit of our elephants.
A lovely moment with baby WanMai and her sister Baitoey, visiting their Grandma Dipor nearby. Baitoey and baby WanMai are mindful to approach their grandma gently.
Malee is fortunate to have 3 old Nannie’s close to her, even if they don’t always get along. Malee is calm and patient, and enjoys the company of any singular nanny or all at once. Malee passes her time in simple pleasures – whether mud, water, scratch posts, or food, she finds happiness in the present moment.
When she arrived at the park, she embraced her new family immediately. Not only is she the adoptive mother of DokNgern, she is also the aunty of Chang Yim, FaaMai, DokMai, and DokRak. And when Bunma and her baby Chaba first arrived she quickly moved to assist caring for Chaba.
These two elderly elephant friends, Arun and Rudee, delight in sharing fresh, sweet watermelons. These rescued souls have forged an unbreakable bond, demonstrating how love and care can heal even the deepest wounds.
What a remarkable transformation of a rescued male elephant named Gluay Hom who endured such hardship before, but now rests in the protective care of Elephant Nature Park ! Now he enjoys a peaceful life and has a relaxed company with others in adjacent sheltering.
At the end of the day, Khamla’s family return to the Park to a welcoming meal which everyone typically readily consumes in a rush. But today, Mae Baitoey is preoccupied and diverted from the treats to satisfy an itch that clearly was important to her! Itch satisfied, food returns to her mind.
Chana is a bright light, a playful soul, and open to the world ! She is the beating heart of this family group, now of 6 elephants. Kabu has been nursemaid to the younger members, MuayLek and ChomPu, while the others go on about their day. SaiThong and PloyThong think that they need to protect and safeguard their younger ward by following her every movement.
She is such a bright and precious light in the life of Elephant Nature Park. To learn more about the rescue of Chaba and her mother Bunma by Save Elephant Foundation with the gracious help of Noelle Weiss and how you can support her at Elephant Nature Park please visit the her life story here…
Look who’s 2 years old today ! Our adorable baby boy, SaNgae. This little boy is so fortunate to have a nanny who dotes over his every breath. SookSai gives the boy strength and purpose. It’s almost tangible the change in the presence of SaNgae today compared to his arrival not so long ago. He is a magnificent baby bull, curious and tenderhearted for the time being. Let’s not borrow trouble, but celebrate his beauty always. ❤️ 💕❤️
A tender moment between two close friends – Ponsawan and Mintra in the fast flowing river Ponsawan loves fast water. She loves the deep water, and anticipates the water level rise after every rain storm at Elephant Nature Park. Mintra is more timid, and checks with her friend if it’s ok to go swimming.
