Thai Elephants Trudge Home

The Save Elephant Foundation

The Save Elephants Foundation that supports fundraising for Elephants in tourist parks & sanctuaries in Thailand is encouraging their return back to their hometown in the Mae Chaem district.

The cost of maintaining Elephants is quite high & with no tourists around during COVID-19, the Elephants are ‘unemployed’ & funds have been running low. This may lead to starvation given their voracious appetites.

Over 100 of these gentle giants marched about 150km back to their homeland in Mae Chaem, where villagers of the Karen ethnic tribe traditionally keep elephants.

The good news is that these gentle giants are thrilled to be back home after a span of almost 20 years & were welcomed with gusto, especially by the village children.

Fun Ele-facts:
? The Elephant is Thailand’s National symbol because of incredible strength, durability, and longevity.
? Elephants are led by a female called the Matriarch.
? Elephants are quite self-aware & can recognize themselves in a mirror.
? Elephants are good swimmers & use their trunk as snorkels when they swim.
? An Elephant’s trunk weighs about 400 pounds & has over 40,000 muscles.
? The Asian Elephant’s ear is said to be shaped like India & the African Elephant’s year is said to be shaped like Africa.
