Bob Barker’s legacy of kindness, compassion, and dedication to animal welfare has left an indelible mark on all of us. His unwavering support for Elephant Nature Park and his contributions to rescue and care for animals, from elephants to dogs, have made a profound difference.
On a rainy day, what better activity than to slather about in slippery slick mud ?! This is heaven for an elephant at Elephant Nature Park, and while LekLek rolls in the mud, Momma MoLoh takes care of an itch at a conveniently located log.
Khamla is the beating heart of the largest family group at Elephant Nature Park. There are 9 elephants who foster her care and well-being, with a mother Mae Baitoey and 2 Nannies, always doting on her. She is a most fortunate young lady to have been rescued at the age of 4 and brought under the care of Save Elephant Foundation. Much has changed since her arrival in 2015 and to see her thrive inside such a wonderfully committed family group has been nothing short of inspiring.
The herd of Buathong, DokMai, ThongJan, and Dokngern enjoyed a mud bath after the rain today, relishing the effects of mud on their skin. Mud therapy is a source of great pleasure for elephants and the mud at Elephant Nature Park is apparently pretty good.
Since his rescue to Elephant Nature Park, SanMueng has become a calmer, more relaxed elephant, but still shows outward signs of the significant trauma experienced in his previous life. We hope that over time, loving kindness and care will bring SanMueng back to being a playful young Pachyderm, rather than be haunted by the human motivated playful behaviours of his past.
After a recent post about the difficulties of 2 newly rescued elephants settling into Elephant Nature Park, our founder Lek Chailert today made this observation: LekLek and her mother, MoLoh, have been in the Park for some time now. It seemed likely that they would be absorbed beautifully into FaaMai’s family group.
Is MuayLek tired of playing with old tyres? We think the resounding answer will be “Never!” Here is another post demonstrating the value and necessity of Elephant Enrichments.
It’s fascinating to observe how elephants like WanMai and her family are not only aware of their surroundings but also attuned to the presence of other elephants, like Thong Ae.
It’s heartwarming to hear about baby Pyi Mai’s journey at the Elephant Nature Park, growing up surrounded by love and care. Her bond with Nanny DMax and her role as a good sister to baby Chaba truly shows the compassion elephants are able to show and feel.
Earlier this year, baby elephant LekLek and mother MohLoh were rescued from the Omkoi District of Chiang Mai by Save Elephant Foundation. On arrival at Elephant Nature Park, they were introduced to FaaMai’s family but three months have passed and acceptance is not complete.
Enrichments for elephants here at Elephant Nature Park, have always been high priority and as conservationists, we are always aware of natural environments and habitats for elephants in our care.
Celebrating World Elephant Day at Elephant Nature Park is a heartwarming experience. The park’s efforts to improve the lives of captive working elephants, witnessing their transformation, healing, and reclamation of their natural behaviors is truly beautiful.
Flashback Friday – Celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of Bunma and her baby Chaba arrival at Elephant Nature Park
Today we celebrated the 2 year anniversary of Mother Bunma and baby Chaba to be with us in the Park ! What a joy it has been ❤️ to be graced with their presence. Noelle, your love for the Giants and your care for them has touched many lives.
We compiled some highlight footage showcasing the remarkable two year transformation of baby Pyi Mai, from the time of rescue and her time since at Elephant Nature Park. This footage vividly depicts the stark contrast in Pyi Mai’s health and condition before and after the rescue.
