Elephant Compassion in Thailand
There is an elephant sanctuary located south west of Bangkok, on monastery grounds, that is part of a larger rescue centre. It’s the perfect place to volunteer abroad with elephants. Nearby forests give rescued elephants the chance to roam around in a more natural environment. They spend from late afternoon until early morning on their own in the forest enabling them to display natural behaviour and to forage for themselves for food.
Elephant Rehabilitation Project in Thailand
Most of the animals residing at the sanctuary were maltreated before they arrived here, suffering from abuse, malnutrition, neglect and improper care, rescued from the illegal pet trade, or have previously been exploited for the tourism industry. Many of the animals arrive with permanent disabilities and hence, cannot be returned to the wild. The centre's mission is to give these animals the best quality of life possible in captivity.
