Elephant Of The Week : Khun Dej

Happy Rescue Anniversary to Khun Dej

Khun Dej was born around 2010. He arrived ENP on 18 October 2014. Khun Kanjana Nuna Silpa Archa discovered this sweet boy and he stole her heart.

Khun Dej came from central Thailand. While he was roaming in the forest, this poor boy got trapped in a snare that was set up by people hoping to capture small animals. Khun Dej was not found in a few days then the wound was very deep and infection had already set in. After he was found , he was taken to a nearby government hospital. It is incredible that he still alive.  He was being well looked after but was on his own, he becoming bored and frustrated.

Khun Kanjana Nuna Silpa Archa tried to help Khun Dej. She requested that Khun Dej be brought to ENP where he could have the chance to live with other elephants and be cared by the herd.

Shortly after he arrived, Dani fell in love with Khu Dej and she now his adopted nanny. Not only Dani, Saree also fell in love with the sweet boy, and she is his adopted sister. Three of them stay together and never far from each other. We hope the beautiful relationship will last long into the future.
