This project provides a caring home for three elephants now retired from a life of arduous work in the logging industry and elephant riding. The elephants living here now get to spend much of the day doing what comes naturally – roaming through the jungle, foraging for wild vegetation, bathing in the river, giving themselves a mud bath, scratching against trees, and socializing with each other. At this project, an emphasis is placed on providing visitors with insights into caring for elephants, their habits, and how to interact with them respectfully.
Mae Ta and Mae Noi, the mother and daughter elephant living free at their forever home. They live together with special love and beautiful bond of mother and daughter. Elephant moms are actually some of the best moms in the animal kingdom. The elephant moms do everything from nursing for years to staying close to their babies for life. Elephant mothers carry their babies for nearly two years before giving birth. Then they ensure their babies get the best food, teach their children the most useful skills.
