Elephant Haven is part of the Elephant Nature Park organization based in Chang Mai, and although Elephant Haven was once a trekking camp providing tourists with elephant riding and entertainment, it has since been converted into a place where elephants can recover in peace and be elephants again.
The business of people using Elephants to acquire easy tourist dollars is ugly, abusive, shameful, and unfortunately quite profitable… but places like Elephant Haven & Elephant Nature park serve both as sanctuaries for these animals and as necessary experiential education for tourists and animal lovers alike. They help shine a light on the need for us to reevaluate our relationships to this planet’s most wonderful creatures.
Upon our jouney to Thailand, we had the great pleasure of spending a few days at Elephant Haven, and experienced what it takes to care for these amazing beings. From prepearing food, to feedings them, to walking, playing, and washing them, we even helped shovel & clean up their massive amounts of poop! There is no doubt that the people of any animal sanctuary have their hands full. Saving animals is not cheap. Even though its highly rewarding, Elephant Haven still has to compete against the existing Elephant Trekking Camps that continue to win over bussiness by offering rides, and all kinds of sad entertainment provided by bo-hooks and years of abuse and submission.
In Thailand, in order to buy an elephant’s freedom the cost is approx $20,000 USD. And after it acquires its freedom it only gets more expensive. Food, shelter, vet bills, care-takers, up keeping facilities, and property for the elephants to roam lead to an endless amount of expenditures. And when putting the elephant to work is not an option to bring in revenue, sanctuaries rely on visitors and donations.
So, we ask that you help in any way you can. Every single dollar is worth something to the people of Elephant Haven. So thank you.
We believe that it is our duty to protect those in need and we’ve come to a point in our history where so many of our animal friends need the help of places like this. We hope to raise enough money to provide Elephant Haven with even just a little more financial assistance as they continue to lead by example.
We thank you for taking this time to watch the video, visit our gofundme page, and contribute to the change we all wish to see upon our planet. Lets stand together as one and speak for the voiceless, they need us as much as we need them.
