Our elephant Malee and Kammoon featured on World Animal Protection Thailand's 'Elephant friendly checklist' poster.
-Is touching allowed? if you can touch, ride or bathe an elephant, it means it's been cruelly trained. Look, don't touch.
-Are elephants behaving naturally?
Elephants should spend their days roaming and socialising in large forest enclosures, not confined or forced to entertain.
-Are there babies there?
They might be cute, but they face a lifetime in captitivy.
Elephant friendly venues don't allow captive breeding.
-Are the elephants and people safe?
Visitors should stay at a safe distance, so elephants can be elephants and mahouts only need hooks or other controls for emergency.
