PROGRAM PACKAGE (PHUKET)
The mahout will be a person who takes care, feeds, and bathes them, and finds a warm house for them. Hence, the mahout and elephant have a close relationship with each other because they have to stay together almost every time. If the elephant doesn’t have the mahout to take care of them, they might have aggressive behavior, be untamed, and be dangerous for the tourist. If the tourist wants to take a picture or feed the elephant, they have to stay with the mahout all the time. Otherwise, it may make the elephant feel unsafe and attack the tourist because a stranger came close to them.
At the end of the day, the mahout is very necessary to elephants, and if the mahout was taken care of and had enough income, this will result in a good effect on the way of the elephant's life as wellRead more
The COVID-19 outbreak changes everything in a worse way, especially the tourism industry. Currently, many elephant sanctuaries around the country are permanently closed because of the rules and preventive measures that force the tourist not to go outside of the house, so this not only affects the mahout and elephants’ life. In the past, an elephant living was comfortable and happy, they had a warm house, medicine, a personal vet, and enough food which was completely different from now.

Thai elephants are not only strong and intelligent but also cute and attractive. They exhibit behaviors similar to humans in childhood, such as eating, sleeping, and playing. They drink from their mother's breast by sucking their mouths until they are 3-4 years old, then switch to plants and salt licks after weaning. Baby elephants are generally affectionate and always near their mother.
Elephants are smart, as they can avoid entering farmer's areas by using an electric fence. They love cleanliness and like to shake off soil or mud attached to vegetation before eating. However, they often face challenges when playing in water due to the loamy edge of the pond. An elephant has sacrificed himself as a ladder for his friends to step over to the shore.
A baby elephant's mischievousness and innocence often make mother and elder elephants worry, as they run toward people and cars. To suppress their fun, they are scolded and beaten by their mothers. Elephants also protect the weaker, with standing movements during danger. Older elephants, like Bunchu, have weak legs and hind legs.
To support Thai elephants and improve their quality, fundraising has been opened to build a nursing home for them. Contributions are 100 baht, with delivery fees being 50 baht nationwide. For more information, contact the Asian Elephant Conservation Foundation at 532-266-8128 or call 053-270732.
