Meet our Elephants

Bai Fern

Bai Fern is just four years old and a beautiful and spirited young elephant.

We walked her HOME with her Mum Thong Kam in August 2015 from a working life. She was born in the camp and had never walked so far and for such a long time.

She had many exciting moments along the way and coped very well with 7 days of walking, she never strayed from her Mum's side and love eating as we trekked through endless forests, she had never seen so much food !

She is now living her life in the forest where she belongs being cared for by wonderful and gentle mahouts, she is growing up to be a strong and confident elephant and with your help her future is secure.

Thank you SO much for sponsoring beautiful Bai Fern.

You will also have a quarterly update on your elephant and we will let you know any important news and updates before we release on social media. 

Every penny goes to help our elephants remain in the forest and we cannot do this without your help, each mahout needs a salary each month and as this is a demanding role requiring extended periods out in the forest we pay decent wages to ensure they are able to take care of their families. 

Mario

Stunning Mario is 5 years old. He is completely supported by Mahouts Elephant Foundation to live in the forest. He spends his days with other elephants being cared for by his surragate mother Thong Kam.

He loves to have a good scrath on trees as he spends his days wandering through thick foliage deciding which tasty plant to eat. He is often seen with lots of foliage on his back as he dusts himself down often. He is very curious and friendly around humans and is a sociable little bull with the other elephants.

We all adore his cheeky ways so please help us to keep him safe in the forest where he belongs. Thank you SO much for sponsoring Mario.

Sunti

Sunti meaning peace in Thai was born in the forest on November 28th 2015.

His Mum Thong Kam was pregnant when we walked her HOME in August 2015. She was in a camp at the time so it was very imprtant to get her safely back to the forest. Sunti is an absolute joy and you cannot stop smiling when in his prescence.

He is growing up with his elephant family around him, walking with them every day, learning from them all the time. At three months old he already has great use of his trunk and this is down to his incredible Mum. He is completely dependent on her milk at the moment but in time will learn to forage like the older elephants. Please help us to keep Sunt right where he belongs, in the forest with his family.

Thank you SO much for your sponsoship of our beautiful little boy.

Thong Kam

Thong Kam is the matriarch of our herd. We walked her HOME in August 2015 with her daughter Bai Fern from a life of work.

She is now thriving in the forest and we could not be prouder of her. She is a WONDERFUL mother with the most caring nature. She is gentle and wise beyond her years.

At 28 she has spent much of her life as a working elephant in the tourist camps, she has been with the same family all her life and has been taken care of which is reflected in her healthy appearance and calm manner.

Her working days are now over and she spands her life living in the forest where she belongs, walking and foraging, dusting and bathing in rivers. She eats whatever she wants when she wants to and is able to make decisions for herself and those in her care once again.

We are so proud of Thong Kam so please help us by sponsoring her, with your help we can keep her in the forest forever.

Thank you SO much.
