Elephant Poaching in Thailand and Worldwide
Despite education vastly improving the situation for wild elephants in Thailand, and while the wild elephant population in Khao Sok is not currently threatened by poaching, we continue to be vigilant in our efforts to safeguard wild elephants locally and across Thailand as part of our Elephant Conservation Project. This project aims to support the elephant population throughout the country – something that we’re very passionate about.
Throughout the country there are issues of conflict between elephant and human populations. An example of this is in Khao Ang Rue Nai Wildlife Sanctuary, where the numbers of wild elephants are steadily increasing, reducing space and resources in the rainforest and driving large herds of elephants into rice fields, creating friction with locals.
Our Elephant Conservation Project enables us to provide resources and support to those on the ground who are looking to ease tension and find ways to sustain both human and elephant populations.
