For more than 20 years, Karen tribes have rented their elephants to Elephant Camps because they could no longer legally use the elephants for logging work. The elephant owners have changed their way of caring for their elephants, with the support of Save Elephant Foundation. These lucky elephants now roam free in their natural habitat, without riding. It is truly wonderful what you can see, when elephants are allowed the freedom to be themselves.
