Thong Ae’s unwavering enthusiasm, resilience, and the warmth she brings to every interaction are truly heartwarming. Her charming character and cheerful nature have captured our hearts, and we’re sure you can’t help but fall in love with her too!
Witness the transformation for yourself in the heartwarming video below. We’re delighted to see MhoJae basking in the joy of her new life in the sanctuary of Elephant Nature Park, surrounded by love, support, and the companionship she deserves.
On this special day dedicated to our feline friends, we want to shine a spotlight on the incredible journey of the cats at Elephant Nature Parks Cat Kingdom. With a heart full of compassion, Elephant Nature Park together with Save Elephant Foundation have rescued thousands of cats from various situations of abuse and neglect across Thailand.
She is often the critical link of fostering positive bonds between disparate groups of elephants. In this video, FaaMai can be seen bringing several groups together for a joint introduction. Unlike many videos captured by the Save Elephant Foundation Media Team, in which we hear loud conversations and other background sounds, this very natural and peaceful video captures the tranquil atmosphere of the elephant sanctuary.
This video was originally recorded and broadcast live on our Eleflix YouTube Channel. Insights into the natural behaviours of rescued elephants that are allowed to behave as elephants is a true joy to watch. This vlogging style production shows rescued elephants Taddao, MeDo and Sai Thong walking through lush vegetation, where we see these mature elephants foraging the hillside for their food.
An elephant will drink 150 – 200 liters of water/day. Access is important. You can see how much MoLoh and LekLek satisfy their thirst at the river, sucking up to 5 liters of water before consuming, and drawn at an astounding rate ! (Researchers calculated that elephants suck up water with what would be an equivalent air velocity of 150 metres per second.)
While Chaba is sleepily nursing from her mother Bunma, PyiMai finds a small log buried in a recently delivered fresh sand pile. Always curious, she tugs and pushes at it and her nanny, DMax comes to help. But sleepy eyed PyiMai had already lost interest, both youngsters due for a nap.
It’s the rainy season here in Thailand and all the rain helps create wonderful muddy fun for the herd. Baby boy Sa Ngae & his nanny Sooksai show us just how much fun can be had and we can see how their beautiful bond has developed
Jokia joined our elephant family in 1997. Mae Perm, the Park’s first rescue, embraced her right away when they met and they were best friends until Mae Perm passed in 2016. Through Mae Perm, Jokia was introduced to many elephants, and, most significantly, to SriPrae who took Jokia into her family when Mae Perm died. Jokia became nanny to Navaan and the closest friend to his mother.
Baby Sa Ngae turns the water tank into his little swimming pool! Adorable baby Sa Ngae sure knows how to to have fun, always under the watchful eye of his nanny SookSai.
We are thrilled to announce an incredible internship opportunity at Elephant Nature Park (ENP), made possible by the generous support of the American Fund for Alternatives to Animal Research (AFAAR), an esteemed organisation dedicated to promoting and facilitating the development and use of alternatives to animals in various areas of science and science education.
She was just a young girl 5 years old, separated from her mother and forced to perform in the circus. With a stubborn proud heart, she refused to comply, and she suffered more harm, shackled and beaten until the owner could do no more with her. She was so fortunate to find her life absorbed into and fostered by a large family group.
A rainy day in the monsoon season satisfies everyone at Elephant Nature Park. The weather is warm and it’s a mud party ! Check out Pyi Mai and Chaba, and their mother’s, Kamun and Bunma, together with nanny Dmax. Mud is their happy place. And afterwards, they like a good scratch. Not originally a family, they found joy in each other’s company at Elephant Nature Park.
