Elephant welfare has been a high priority for us from the start and whereas our elephants are well taken care of and happy, we want to do our part in helping other elephants in Thailand; both domestic and wild populations. This is the reason we founded Elephant Hills Elephant Conservation Project over ten years ago.

We spread awareness of the endangered Asian Elephants and support elephant conservation by contributing to help to keep the wild populations safe. Some of the recent donations include an electric fence in Kanchanaburi and several salt licks in Loei – both projects aim to help to prevent human-elephant conflicts at the Wildlife Sanctuaries. We also aid government run elephant hospitals by donating essential equipment as well as herbs, plants and trees to help to improve the welfare of the domestic elephants treated in the hospitals.

How can you help?

  • Don’t support poorly maintained elephant camps
  • Don’t support elephants that are used for begging purposes
  • Don’t buy ivory products
  • Donations of funds are accepted at our elephant camp and delivered to government run elephant hospitals and wild elephant conservation projects all over Thailand

We are currently looking for partners to co-operate with our Elephant Conservation Project through sponsorship. If you or your company would be interested, please contact us at [email protected].

Conservation of wild populations

Our team recently took to the road and visited five National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries in Thailand to discuss about the human-elephant conflict and ways to solve it. We drove through the country to reach the areas most affected by human-elephant conflicts, in order to learn more and see how we can help.

Although the nature of the problems as well as solutions differed quite a lot in each area, there was one thing common for all places we visited: the increase in the number of wild elephants. While this is amazing news, it evidently also means an increase in conflict situations as the rainforests are not getting any bigger. In some areas, there is little capacity left for the growing populations. National Parks, Wildlife Sanctuaries and people living close to the protected forest areas are left with a massive challenge to find a solution that suits all parties, of whom one happens to be the biggest land animal in Asia.

We are currently looking for individuals and companies to co-operate with our Elephant Conservation Project through corporate sponsorship. Together we can help to conserve the wild populations by helping the National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries with their continuous efforts in reducing the human-elephant conflicts. Possible projects include donating material and funds for salt licks, drinking and bathing ponds, grass planting, bee hive fences, electric fences and other kinds of barriers. The hard-working rangers are also lacking equipment such as hammocks, flash lights and binoculars, as well as food supplies for their long patrol treks.
