The Story
3 months ago

There are no tourists in Thailand. Sadly it is unlikely that there will be any tourists for some time to come. As a result Thailands beloved elephants are in a dire predicament. Most elephant camps, and especially those who have been working hard to transition from elephant riding to saddle off programmes, are suffering badly. The human cost of Covid 19 is unimaginable and the cost is impacting elephants catastrophically. We are asking you to find it in your heart to help these majestic animals and communities in need.

Khun Noom is the owner of Khao Sok Elephant Sanctuary and has no money to feed his 4 elephants or pay for their mahouts salary.

Five years ago Vicki met Khun Noom. He owned a trekking camp in Khao Sok. He really wanted to move to a more ethical business model,  and give his Elephants a better life. As a foreigner, and as an animal activist, when Vicki met him, he asked me for help. So over the next two years she and her children would come the 2.5 hour drive from Phuket up to Khao Sok every other week, and do trial tours and advised him to buy land that had a river on it or water, which he did. He moved his two female elephants, Wasana and Si Nin, to the sanctuary where they lived in peace and harmony for the last few years. COVID-19 has brought this sanctuary to its knees. He has no money to pay his mahouts, or food for the Elephants. They have to forage in the jungle and it's just simply not enough. We are raising money to help them get through these difficult times, until tourism can come back. For now there is no assistance and these animals and mahouts are suffering, as well as Noom and his family. We need to raise money for food, but also to build an enclosure for the male elephants, and to put a fence around the property to keep the elephatns safe and secure so they can be completey chain and rope free. Any donation no matter how small is greatly appreciated.
