This adorable baby elephant born on 06th October this year From the mother named Thong Koon. Meet with Anda the little female elephant at Surin Project. We work alongside the Gwi community in the Surin Elephant Study Centre located in the village of Ban Tha Klang in Surin Province in North East Thailand. The Surin Project’s main focus is to get some of the elephants in the study centre out into more natural surroundings where volunteers can walk alongside them and observe these magnificent creatures acting like elephants should be. This offers the mahouts who own the elephants an alternative form of employment to elephant riding or elephant shows which are the main forms of income for many mahouts in the area to support their elephants and families.
