As you might know, working with the local community is incredibly important to us. Even though we are a starting Foundation, we do whatever we can for them. One of the things is that we buy food for our elephants from our neighbours, mainly bana grass.
Unfortunately the covid pandemic has hit us hard, and we have to do our best to save costs. That is why from the 1st of June we have rented 13 Rai of land to grow our own food. We plan to grow bana grass, banana trees, bananas, papayas & okra vegetables.
This way, we will be able to scale our costs of elephant food back.
