Saza was born around 1943 in Mae Chaem, south of Chiang Mai. She spent most of her life working in logging. After the logging ban in 1989, Saza was used to give rides to tourists. She worked in many different areas through out Thailand, finally ending up in Kanchanaburi where she was discovered, gaunt and listless but still being worked. Saza’s last set of teeth are completely worn out, making it impossible for her to absorb any nutrition from the grass, cornstalks or pineapple tops she was given at the end of each day. Khun Nuna Silpa Archa learned about Saza’s difficulty and contacted a friend who was interested in helping out an elephant in need. Saza was rescued and arrive our sanctuary on 2nd February 2015. Big thanks to funds donated by Mr. Visit Tantisunthorn and family who saved Saza and now she is living at her forever home, Elephant Nature Park.
