Mission Statement

-Our elephants are not used for entertainment; we respect them and treat them with the care they deserve. -We stand up for the rights of our mahouts (elephant caretakers), they are our heroes. -We are dedicated to raise awareness so people don’t unknowingly participate in animal abuse.

Description

We are a non-profit hands-off elephants’ sanctuary, located 25 km outside of the city of Kanchanaburi and 134 km from Bangkok, Thailand.

Our foundation cares for old elephants.

Our team has seen the abuse elephants endure in

places that call themselves sanctuaries, where they mislead

unknowing tourists with words as 'animal friendly' and 'rescue center'.

We decided enough is enough, it's time to make a real change.
