Meet Plai Kham the elephant. This gentle boy is 39 years old and has spent most of his life working as a logging elephant, pulling heavy loads with chains wrapped around his shoulders. When not pulling logs, he is forced to give rides to tourists. For nearly 40 years, Plai Kham has never had a break. He deserves freedom and rest.
Plai Kham is just one example of 200 elephants being forced to work who deserve a life of peace, in a sanctuary. Help us rescue them!
A team of elephant rescuers, led by world-renowned Asian elephant conservationist Lek Chailert, is ready to rescue 200 elephants and bring them to freedom. Once in one of Lek's sanctuaries, these elephants will receive medical care, proper nourishment, love, and a peaceful, joyous life with other rescued Asian elephants.
Lek and her team have saved many captive elephants. The documentary film Love & Bananas: An Elephant Story, exposes the plight of Asian elephants, but the film focuses on hope and the people who work tirelessly to save these gentle behemoths and to raise public awareness of their plight.
Your donation helps rescue elephants in desperate need like Plai Kham, and will also buy more land to expand the sanctuary, with a focus on rescuing Asian elephants from abuse and exploitation.
