Kamu is about forty years old. She was a logging elephant for many years and then moved to the riding business. In the wake of COVID, Kamu’s owner decided that he could no longer look after her. He called Save Elephant Foundation for help. We told to the owner that our space is very limited, and our capacity nearly reached. The owner of Kamu still confirmed to leave her with us, as dry season approaches and he was concerned about the ability to provide food for his elephants.
Fortunately, from the kindness of Khun Oat Pacharavalee, Khun Meaw Warattada Pattarodom and her friends, more than half of the money to redeem Kamu’s life, was raised. At that time, we told the former owner that we do not have the funds to pay for her. The owner insisted that we take her for now, as he no longer had a mahout nor finances to keep her. Thanks to all who have shared in bringing this beautiful life to us. Kamu will be happy. Look at her today. She is quite satisfied to have a shelter and no longer live with a short chain since she arrived the park on November 2021.
She has come a long way and has passed through much hardship in her life, but now Kamu has a new life with her exceptional companions, Siam, YaiYim, and TikTok. These four elephant ladies were rescued from the elephant-riding business not long ago. And today, the four of them begin a happy life together at their new home in Elephant Nature Park.
Kamu rescue story.
New life update: Kamu, Siam, YaiYim, and TikTok are roaming free.
