Since her arrival she has adjusted very well to sanctuary life, enjoying an abundance of food, swimming in the river, and being surrounded by love and care.
For us, every day is animal day as we dedicate our efforts to rescuing and providing the best care for animals. We have helped various animal species, including elephants, dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, buffaloes, goats, and more. Currently, we have more than five thousand animals under our care. We work tirelessly to bring about positive changes and improve the lives of any animal in need.
Activists around the world became aware of the plight of Kaavan in 2015 after petitions and news articles began to circulate about the dire conditions in which he was languishing. It was reported that he was bound in chains for over two decades. Activists led by Cher fought for several years to free Kaavan from the zoo and bring him to sanctuary.
Bob Barker’s legacy of kindness, compassion, and dedication to animal welfare has left an indelible mark on all of us. His unwavering support for Elephant Nature Park and his contributions to rescue and care for animals, from elephants to dogs, have made a profound difference.
Khamla is the beating heart of the largest family group at Elephant Nature Park. There are 9 elephants who foster her care and well-being, with a mother Mae Baitoey and 2 Nannies, always doting on her. She is a most fortunate young lady to have been rescued at the age of 4 and brought under the care of Save Elephant Foundation. Much has changed since her arrival in 2015 and to see her thrive inside such a wonderfully committed family group has been nothing short of inspiring.

This Flashback Friday post shows a video of how 7 elephants were rescued by Save Elephant Foundation and transported to their new homes within the sanctuary of Elephant Nature Park. It was a big day for them, 7 elephants, ostensibly friends, rescued by Save Elephant Foundation, and relocated to a new home where they would never have to work again. It took some time, but it became clear that each would choose their own way and find the person whom they thought to be akin. Time and space and self-discovery prepare the way for living happily in the sanctuary of Elephant Nature Park.
This is MuayLek, a female elephant who is only seven years old. MuayLek worked to entertain in an elephant show. She was a regular star of the camp. Her main work was to perform for tourists. She was trained to paint, to perform with a Hula Hoop, and to stand on 2 legs while dancing. MuayLek remained tethered and dealt with so much stress. All baby elephants deserve the right to play freely, but she never had that chance. Instead, MuayLek developed typical stress behaviour.
On August 10th, 2021, Bunma and her baby girl, Chaba, walked over a mountain to their freedom at Elephant Nature Park. You can read more about the heart wrenching decisions and timely actions of Save Elephant Foundation to rescue Bunma with her little baby Chaba in her life story page.
