Urgent appeal to help our elephants 

As Thailand is on lockdown, the tourist industry has completely shut down.

This, unfortunately, means zero income for most elephant sanctuaries, parks & camps.


We are doing our best to continue taking the best care of our elephants, but we need to ask for your help, our supporters from around the world. To continue feeding our old elephants their specialized diet and supporting our mahouts, we need help with funding.​​

  Our BASIC costs to support our elephants & mahouts come to about €1350,00 euros for the month of MAY (during the months of April and May our staff salary is sponsored 62% by the government)

During the months June-July our basic costs are estimated to be around 1950,00 euros per month. 


This includes our elephant's food such as special pellet food for older elephants, sticky rice, bana grass, vitamins, herbs, and medicine which are all absolutely vital for our older elephants with poor digestion.


It also includes our mahout's salary and food, where would we be without these heroes looking after our gentle giants.

No one knows how long this situation will affect us, so we have decided to start with raising funds for 3 months.
