From all of us at Elephant Nature Park, thank you for being a part of our journey, to protect and care for all animals. Your support means the world to us and to our animal family
Despite enduring both mental and physical abuse from a life of forced breeding, Vana is now on the path to healing. Her recent pregnancy brought challenges, including a tragic stillbirth with complications, but she has already started her treatment at Elephant Nature Park and will receive ongoing medical care.
Save Elephant Foundation were initially alerted to the horrific plight of Dao Tong by Matt Rousu and Chantelle Ridley (Ride Bikes not Elephants project) and they were instrumental in raising funds to facilitate the release and rescue of this beautiful soul to Elephant Nature Park Sanctuary.
We are constantly replenishing the various sources of enrichment for the elephants around the park, enabling them to on the one hand enjoy soil and mud bathing but also to share special moments with family.
Mesmerizing images of beloved SriPrae, taking a leisurely dip in the river on a scorching afternoon. For elephants, the simple daily ritual of bathing is a time of joyful harmony with nature.
Vana begins her new life in the sanctuary of Elephant Nature Park and now commences the difficult journey of acceptance and trust, that her new mahout will take care of her. Today we walked her to the river. She was calm and more relaxed. After the quarantine period ends, we will introduce her to our elephant family.
Beautiful Mae Mai, appears incredibly relaxed, as she enjoys mixing water with the red earth to form the perfect skin lotion and tonic, to help shield her skin from the burning sun and irritating mosquitos.
After researching KraTae’s life story , we found that KraTae had been bought and sold many times in her past. And had worked in many places in Thailand. During Covid, KraTae was sick quite often with colic, and falling down many times. The owner had contacted us often, concerned that she would not live long.
