Tikiri Update:
This is the latest picture of Tikiri after she was returned back to her owner. I would like to thank all media and people around the world who helped to focus attention on her, and to bring her voice onto the stage, raising awareness about her life and condition, and that of all other captive elephants who follow after her aged steps.
How is Tikiri now ? Is she truly cared for well ? She is sick. She is old. She is weak. Why is she still tied both legs front and back ? Surely she deserves better. Is it fear of her from a lifetime of abuse ? Is there no emotional reciprocity, having spent a lifetime with her ? The bond between mahout and elephant is vigorously defended. The bond is clear. I see the bonds. If you love animals, truly, open your eyes, your mind, your heart, to their suffering. Do not let self importance blind you from the truth !

I posted Tikiri's story because I want her voice to be known, and too many others who suffer with her. I have visited Perahera many times to record, research, and witness the fact that it is not getting better. I have enough information to speak clearly. It is time to speak plainly, to end the cruelty.
Pictures speak more loudly than my voice to those with open hearts. The world will know the truth one day. May we not rue that day, but stand in welcome memory that we stood in the Gap for them - that the elephant survived our current holocaust on the planet because of even a vigilant few with no compromise.
Tikiri is not the only one that needs our help. There are still so many elephants whose voice is silenced by oppression. They need our voice. I ask all friends, the true advocates for animals, do not give up your voice for them. Do not let the group of 'animal people' who work for their own benefit, ruin your will. Carry on your work for the animal. One moment of time is about being Present, living consciously and with compassion, until we see their true protection and their lives restored to safety and freedom.

Thanks to being able to socialize naturally, the herd at Elephant Pride have formed strong bonds. The hallmarks of friendship between elephants include showing empathy for each other, expressing affection for one another with intimate reassuring gestures, and vocalizations such as rumbles and chirps. No elephant should be forced to live in isolation. Seeing elephants interacting is a joyful experience.

Watching elephants in their jungle habitat, doing what comes naturally, is a profoundly moving experience. They exist on a different frequency from humans, and very much live in the present moment. Join elephants in the jungle and witness the beauty of elephants living in natural surroundings.

Samui Elephant Sanctuary

Starting our travels around Asia has meant I haven't had chance to post anything in a while, but the experiences I'm having have been a great source of inspiration 🐘🐒. We recently visited @samuielephantsanctuary the first elephant sanctuary established on Koh Samui in Southern Thailand supported by @saveelephantfoundation. It offers safe retirement home for elephants who have worked exhausting hours in the logging and tourism industries. We had the chance to feed and walk with the elephants and watch them in their natural habitat. It really made me question how such beautiful creatures are still widely abused even today, but hopefully if more tourists visit and support projects like this, we can end this suffering once and for all 🙅

Today, I was honoured to be invited by the US & Australian Embassy to screen Love & Bananas; An Elephant Story.

It was a great opportunity to address the audience of senior members of both embassies and community mission members about the true plight of the Asian Elephant.
A special thank you to Layla Shaw from the US Embassy who arranged the event and brought everyone together to understand the issues faced by elephants across Asia.
The continued support I receive from around the world gives me great hope that we will see a better future for elephants and all animals across Asia.

วันนี้ดิฉันได้รับเชิญจากสองสถานฑูตคือสถานฑูตอเมริกาและสถานฑูตออสเตรเลียให้มาบรรยายเกี่ยวกับช้าง พร้อมนำหนังเรื่องเลิฟแอนด์บานาน่ามาฉายในสถานฑูตพร้อมทั้งตอบข้อซักถามเกี่ยวกับสถานการณ์เกี่ยวช้างในประเทศไทยและเอเซีย ดิฉันรู้สึกเป็นเกียรติและดีใจที่สถานฑูตทั้งสองประเทศได้ให้ความสนใจและให้ความสำคัญต่อช้างที่เป็นทรัพยากรอันมีค่าของประเทศ
ขอบคุณสถานฑูตออสเตรเลียที่เปิดโอกาสให้ดิฉันได้นำเรื่องราวของช้างเข้ามาเผยแพร่แก่แขกและบุคลากรของทั้งสองสถานฑูต
ขอบคุณเป็นพิเศษสำหรับ มาดาม เลย์ล่า ชอว์ จากสถานฑูตอเมริกา ที่เป็นผู้จัดงานในครั้งนี้ เพื่อทำให้ทุกคนได้เข้าใจในสถานการณ์เกี่ยวกับช้างมากขึ้นกว่าเดิม
กราบขอบพระคุณทุกๆท่านจากทุกมุมโลกที่มีส่วนผลักดันและสร้างหวังให้กับช้างและสัตว์ทุกชนิดในเอเซีย เพราะความเมตตาและวิสัยทัศน์ของท่านเราจะสามารถสร้างความเปลี่ยนแปลงและสร้างอนาคตที่ดีให้กับช้างไทย.

Samui Elephant Haven

It seems that thousands of years ago the woolly mammoth roamed the planet and is a distant ancestor of the Asian Elephant. I wonder what else roams on Koh Samui Island on a rainy day... “I wouldn't have seen it if I hadn't believed it.” Kenneth Lacovara, Why Dinosaurs Matter

Elephants and mahouts (keepers) on their way to the river for a nice bath, splash and relax time. 2 times per week ele‘s do have opportunity to walk to moon river. End of walk is nice cool swim, splash. The walk is a good opportunity to move free chains for elephants living in captivity.

Samui Elephant Haven

Kwan Samui was reminiscing about her first day at Samui Elephant Haven this morning; "Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.” - Brian Jacques

Thankfully she knows that there is endless sunlight at the Haven to heal her wounded heart and those of her friends.

Ketika gajah dielus pipinya, eh matanya merem. Lucu ya.

Sampoinet merupakan Conservation Response Unit pertama di aceh, tepatnya di Desa Ie Jeureungeh, Kecamatan Sampoinet, Kabupaten Aceh Jaya. Alasan dilokasi tersebut, selain karena sering terjadi konflik gajah dengan manusia, juga karena telah ada lahan yang disiapkan oleh Pemerintah untuk penempatan gajah jinak, mahout (perawat gajah) dan ranger. Dengan adanya CRU, gajah sumatera dapat hidup dengan aman sekarang.

This is Tikiiri, a 70 year old ailing female. She is one of the 60 elephants who must work in the service of the Perahera Festival in Sri Lanka this year. Tikiri joins in the parade early every evening until late at night every night for ten consecutive nights, amidst the noise, the fireworks, and smoke. She walks many kilometers every night so that people will feel blessed during the ceremony. No one sees her bony body or her weakened condition, because of her costume. No one sees the tears in her eyes, injured by the bright lights that decorate her mask, no one sees her difficulty to step as her legs are short shackled while she walks.

For a ceremony, all have the right to belief as long as that belief does not disturb or harm another. How can we call this a blessing, or something holy, if we make other lives to suffer?

It was World Elephant Day a few days ago. We cannot bring a peaceful world to the elephant if we still think that this image is acceptable.

To love, to do no harm, to follow a path of kindness and compassion, this is the Way of Buddha. It is time to follow.

This is Tikiiri, a 70 year old ailing female. She is one of the 60 elephants who must work in the service of the Perahera Festival in Sri Lanka this year. Tikiri joins in the parade early every evening until late at night every night for ten consecutive nights, amidst the noise, the fireworks, and smoke. She walks many kilometers every night so that people will feel blessed during the ceremony. No one sees her bony body or her weakened condition, because of her costume. No one sees the tears in her eyes, injured by the bright lights that decorate her mask, no one sees her difficulty to step as her legs are short shackled while she walks.

For a ceremony, all have the right to belief as long as that belief does not disturb or harm another. How can we call this a blessing, or something holy, if we make other lives to suffer?

The ivory trade is familiar to everyone, isn't it? But did you know that other body parts of elephants also have their value?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So are the eyelashes and the tail. But they need their eyelashes to protect their eyes. And their tail to drive away insects, because elephants have very sensitive skin, although they seem so robust.

Reposted from @the_elephant_lover83 (@get_regrann) - This innocent little baby has no idea what’s in store for him. He will be subjected to nothing but fear and pain for the rest of his little life. It just brings me to tears. This photo is from India. The captive elephants there live a life in chains, they’re beaten daily, most are partially but purposely blinded. They’re denied access to proper foods, enough water, rest and shade from the sun. They spend their days overworked for temples and festivals and Even in lame conditions are they ever shown a day of mercy in their lives. When you look at this photo, I bet you see a human kindly bathing a baby elephant. I see, a helpless baby without it’s mother, who has absolutely no clue what’s happening. I see, a monster who will do anything he wants to a helpless baby elephant simply because he can. Greed and ignorance are two very scary things in this world, it brings out the ugly in people. #india #babyelephant #templeelephant #elephantslavery #kerala #animalabuse #animalsarenotentertainment #elephant #saveelephantfoundation #animalrights #letlive - #regrann

Posted @withrepost@lek_chailert This is Tikiiri, a 70 year old ailing female. She is one of the 60 elephants who must work in the service of the Perahera Festival in Sri Lanka this year. Tikiri joins in the parade early every evening until late at night every night for ten consecutive nights, amidst the noise, the fireworks, and smoke. She walks many kilometers every night so that people will feel blessed during the ceremony. No one sees her bony body or her weakened condition, because of her costume. No one sees the tears in her eyes, injured by the bright lights that decorate her mask, no one sees her difficulty to step as her legs are short shackled while she walks.

For a ceremony, all have the right to belief as long as that belief does not disturb or harm another. How can we call this a blessing, or something holy, if we make other lives to suffer?

Today is World Elephant Day. We cannot bring a peaceful world to the elephant if we still think that this image is acceptable.

To love, to do no harm, to follow a path of kindness and compassion, this is the Way of Buddha. It is time to follow.

ทิกกิรี ช้างแก่คราวทวด เป็นหนึ่งในช้างหกสิบเชือกที่เข้าร่วมเดินพิธีแห่ในงานเทศกาลเพราเฮลา ในปีนี้ นี่คือสภาพช้างที่เหมือนซากศพเดินได้ ที่มนุษย์บังคับให้เธอเดินในพิธีแห่งบุญ เธอต้องเดินตั้งแต่หัวค่ำจนถึงใกล้รุ่งทุกวัน ท่ามกลางเสียงมโหรี ที่บรรเลงตลอดทางและสองข้างทางหนาแน่นไปด้วยผู้คนที่ส่งเสียงอื้ออึง เธอเดินย่ำไปบนท้องถนนที่ร้อนท่ามกลางควันไปที่หนาทึบจากการจุดประทัดและเผามะพร้าว
ทุกคนที่ยืนอยู่ตรงนั้นตกตะลึงในเครื่องแต่งกายของช้างและริ้วขบวนที่อลังการ แต่ทุกคนลืมมองไปที่ดวงตาของพวกเขา ไม่มีใครเห็นเท้าทั้งสี่ผูกโซ่อย่างแน่นหนาเดินไปบนท้องถนนที่เสียงโซ่กระทบดังไปตลอดทาง ไม่มีใครมองเห็นร่างกายที่ผอมเกร็ง อ่อนล้า ที่ซ่อนภายใต้ผืนอาภรณ์ที่ประดับ ทิกกิรี
ศาสนาพุทธสอนให้เรามีความเมตตาและไม่เบียดเบียนผู้อื่น แต่การบังคับช้างที่อยู่ในสภาพอย่างนี้มาเดินขบวนมันขัดต่อหลักศาสนา ที่เราเชื่ออยู่ ความเมตตาที่แท้จริงคือการมองทุกชีวิตมีความหมายและมีค่าเท่ากัน

Not so Tiny Now Thong Ae wants to nap in the afternoon, but she still does not completely lay sleeping, as she has concerns about her. Then her chief nanny comes to be with her, to ensure her rest. This is the way of the elephant lullaby to the young ones under their care.
ในยามที่ลูกช้างง่วง เขาจะไมหลับง่ายๆ บางทีเขาจะหลับๆตื่นๆ เดี๋ยวลุกเดี๋ยวนั่ง มีพฤติกรรมไม่ต่างจากเด็กๆของเรา มาดูวิธีการกล่อมลูกของช้างพี่เลี้ยง เขาทำอย่างไรให้น้องทองเอหลับ
