Enjoy a great day and learning elephant behavior with Hope for Elephant program

Elephants are extremely social animals, they have strong family ties. Female family members often stay together on their entire lives. They communicate via rumbles, bellows, and moans. Other elephants receive the messages through the sensitive skin on their feet and trunks.

At our Hope for Elephant program, the visitors can see this bond and observe their natural behavior while they are roam free. The elephants love to have river bath,  the trunks are used like a hose to spray water across the body. To help protect the skin from parasites and biting insects, elephants wallow in mud or spray dust on their wet skin. Once the mud and dust dry, elephants scratch their body with rock or trees to remove parasites.
