Within our Elephant Conservation Project, we regularly support all three government run elephant hospitals in Thailand. One of the latest donations took place in Surin province, known for its centuries-long history of elephant husbandry. We visited Surin Elephant Hospital and donated a new power sprayer, as well as a CPU for the veterinarians’ office.
The vet team from Surin visits us at Khao Sok during their annual elephant health checks at Southern Thailand’s elephant camps. Consequently, we are well familiar with the team and were very pleased to visit them in turn. With our previous donation, we contributed to improving their mahout facilities. The vets showed us around in the hospital grounds, and we were pleased to see that our earlier donation had been put into good use.
This time, the team had requested for a motorized power sprayer. The device will help to ensure effective cleaning and disinfecting of the floors and treatment surfaces at the hospital. At the time of our visit, there was one elephant being admitted. Hence, the new piece of equipment went straight into use. The vet team was also pleased to receive a new CPU to replace a broken one at their office, this of course is essential for seamless record-keeping.
Much help is still needed to provide continuous support to this, and other government run elephant hospitals in Thailand. We are currently looking for partners to co-operate with our Elephant Conservation Project through corporate sponsorship. Please contact us at [email protected] to learn more and discuss the options!
