Elephant Nature Park

Many of you have been in touch with us asking for an update on Gluay Hom who was rescued recently to Elephant Nature Park after an expose published in National Geographic.
Look at this handsome boy now settling in at Elephant Nature Park and starting his journey of healing both physically and mentally.
Note the carrot stored between his tusk and trunk for later ❤️ #SaveElephantFoundation

Thank you for your review @blackersam
Peek-a-boo!
Didn’t have the heart to tell her the tree didn’t hide her!
Seriously, this beautiful, amazing lady is one of 6 elephant at Samui Elephant Sanctuary and she had so much character!
Then sanctuary rescues elephants from rides and circuses and if you never want to see these beautiful creatures in pain again I recommend checking out the amazing work they do!

The best way to see elephants bathing - freely!
Elephants love nothing more than playing and cooling off in their pool and mud pit. They love to bathe alone or with their friends.
We don’t allow bathing with our rescued girls because it is too stressful for them and inhibits natural behaviour.
Our sanctuary is for the elephants where they can finally feel at peace and not be forced everyday to go in the water, lay down and for guests to surround them to throw buckets of water all over their bodies.
If you truly want to see elephants happy, please respect them & do your research before visiting any project. 📸 @charlotte.arendt

All our rescued girls have suffered mistreatment at the hands of man.
Now they are in their safe sanctuary home, it is our time to repay and give them the best possible life!
If man creates the problem, we must be the ones who create the solution. 📸 @corinnesteinmaier

Samui Elephant Sanctuary

Everyone who visits us instantly falls in love with our gentle matriarch Cartoon.
She born around 1962 in Surin in the northeast of Thailand. Cartoon was first used in the logging industry, until this was finally banned by the Government in 1989. She was then forced into the tourism industry where life consisted of providing grueling rides for tourists in the heat, hour after hour, day after day.
Cartoon was brought to Koh Samui around 2002 and continued providing tourist rides until she was rescued to live at our sanctuary on Monday 1st January 2018, joining our happy herd.
She now spends her days roaming happily throughout the sanctuary. Her favourite activities are foraging for food and socialising with the herd as she embraces her new life, surrounded by nature and treated with love and respect.
She is safe for the rest of her life, which happily, is now a dignified one.

Thank you @dmotwani for your kind review of Samui Elephant Sanctuary & your excellent advice for others looking for a genuine sanctuary. ‘Elephant sanctuaries are abundant in Thailand, most claiming to have rescued and now, protect these beautiful creatures. It’s important to know how sanctuaries look after them and how to behave if you choose to visit. Riding them, pulling their ears, telling them what to do e.g. bowing, bending down to take photos etc., and (in many cases) taking mud baths with them is unethical. They are not given their personal space or freedom to do as they please.

Samui Elephant Sanctuary was different. They have rescued six female elephants, all of whom have been abused or maltreated by previous owners. Scars, scratches and blood are still seen on many. The sanctuary not only lets them roam freely with one dedicated caretaker, but only allows visitors to feed them, ensuring the elephants and their space is respected.

I highly encourage doing your research before visiting a sanctuary of any kind, ensuring the animals are well-protected with minimal invasion of their personal space.’ Visit us and meet our amazing rescued herd!

Our girls roam freely throughout their lush sanctuary home.

We are so excited that very soon we will be opening our second sanctuary in Koh Samui. The new sanctuary will be much larger; giving us the opportunity to free more elephants from abuse and give them the best possible life.
All of this would not be possible without all your support!
