The elephants at Elephant Heaven were recently treated to a buffet of mangoes and watermelon as well as bananas and sugarcane. Boon-Ngern acts as a nanny to younger Boon-Mee and these two elephants share a very close bond. We’re grateful to everyone who has helped to buy food for the elephants. 🙏💙🐘🍉🍌 Support the herd at Elephant Heaven @ www.asianelephantprojects.com/elephant-heaven or www.asianelephantprojects.com/banana-fund (link in bio ) #AsianElephantProjects #SaddleOffProjects #ElephantHeaven #BeKindToElephants #SaveElephantFoundation #ElephantSanctuary #AsianElephant #Elephant #SaddleOff #ElephantLove #AsianElephants #ElephantRescue #JoinTheHerd #SaveElephants #EthicalElephantTourism #ResponsibleTravel #EcoTourism #Photography #AnimalLover #LoveAnimals #PlantBased #ChiangMai #TravelThailand #AmazingThailand #StaySafe

Elephants are among the world's most intelligent species. They express a wide variety of behaviors, including those associated with grief, learning, altruism, use of tools, compassion, self-awareness, memory, and language. Researchers recently discovered that elephants can distinguish differences in human gender, age, and ethnicity purely by the sound of someone’s voice. 🐘 📷 @amivitale #elephants #saveelephants #stoppoaching #kenya #elephant #elephantsofinstagram #elephantlover #elephant #elephants #elephanttattoo #elephantlove #elephantsanctuary #elephantlover #elephantsofinstagram #elephantart #elephantnaturepark #elephantdrawing #elephantears #elephantjournal #elephantlovers #elephante #elephanttrunk #elephantplains #elephantsafari

Asian elephants belong in the wild roaming their natural forest terrain. Those rescued from cruel tourism or logging cannot always be released back to the wild. The next best place is a genuine sanctuary allowing safe space sufficient to exhibit natural behaviour in a herd. This beautiful photo of two rescued elephants is by @NeverForgetElephantFoundation - ‘Seeing the elephants able to make their own choices and socialize with each other as they wish, forage and travel where they want to go is the epitome of peace for us.’ . . #asianelephants #elephantrescue #wildlifeconservation #elephantsanctuary #savetheelephants #saveelephants #animalrescue #neverrideanelephant #animallovers #thailand #elephants #elephantlove

We love Chiang Mai and it was love at first sight! On our 15 day trip to Thailand, Chiang Mai was the very first city we explored❤️ Chiang Mai is the largest city in northern Thailand, rightly known as 'Rose in the North'. We were here for four days and how we wish we could have stayed longer, as there is a lot to see and do in and around this beautiful city. We are listing our favourite five things to do, but to be honest we have a lot more activities in our bucket list for our next visit😊 Tell us in comments which one activity you will definitely include in your itinerary?

Lovely story from our founder, Lek Saengduean Chailert: We had visitors today. They are from one of the groups of elephants that we are supporting from the tourist camp. They are staying in our Lychee orchard, and their mahouts are living next to them. We provide land and feed these 4 Elephants during this Covid crisis . Today they crossed the river to visit our girls. The two young females immediately joined our herd , but the bull did not receive an easy welcome from BuaTong, Faamai's mother, who makes all the big decisions for this family. She did not agree for him to come too far onto our land. She walked straight to him and began to push him away . Our young girls were more excited to see the stranger, but not this elder lady who has more experience and a concern for their safety . Elephants do not differ far from people, whereby the senior members are always taking care of the family. #ElephantNaurePark #ElephantSanctuary #ENP #elephants #elephantsanctuarychiangmai #asianelephant #thaielephant #TheHerd #elephantrescued #saveelephants #bekindtoelephants #animallovers #animal #ChiangMai #Thailand

#100happydays - day 46 (The gentle giants ) PORTUGUÊS 🇧🇷 PASSE PARA O LADO ➡️. . Have you ever made a decision or signed up for something with a fear of it not going the way you expected? You know, that old feeling of being excited but scared at the same time. Have you ever questioned how ethical your own dreams are? Well, I suppose this kind of questioning comes in quite often if you have a strong principle going against something you really want to do. So, what do you do then? Give up on your dream or go against what you believe is the right thing to do? My opinion? Research. Spend a few days doing so. Look into every possible theory and every documented outcome. In my case this was fairly easy, I spent two days speaking to locals, researching reviews on google and taking advice from travel blogs I admire. All for just one event, visiting an elephant sanctuary. Although it had been a dream to be so close to these gentle giants for a while, I needed to ensure I was doing the right thing, going in the correct path. Today, I feel one hundred percent confident in my decision. What I experienced in the sanctuary was unforgettable and so emotional.

Happy June 1st!! I'm sharing here the most amazing experience I had in Thailand! We fed, gave mud baths and swim with elephants! This was very special and it's definitely one of the best things you can experience while visiting Thailand. We actually did this at the end of our trip and it was the perfect way to end it❤🐘🇹🇭 . . . #thailand #phuket #asia #elephantsanctuary #elephants #travel #influencer #traveling #blog #blogger #nycblogger #wanderlust #quarantine #citygirl #lifestyle #travelgram #traveler #explore #wanderer #wander #vacation #traveladdict #travelers #travelgirl #travelingsalvi #salviswhotravel #wetravelgirls #borntotravel #passionpassport #traveldaily via @preview .app

Almost every mahout family who stays with us love dogs, and will have a dog in their family. Every morning when our mahouts take the elephant to walk in the field or up river, their dogs will follow and remain with them all day. They become a common part of herd life. Where ever the elephant goes, the dogs will be close by. The herd does not mind for these little friends, and are content in their company at Elephant Nature Park .

The bond between a Mother and Son runs deep, no matter what country you are from. So when we asked Kyo in the interview process why he wanted to become a mahout, he first response was "so I can drive my mum to work at the project each day"... We can't really say no to that, and that is why this Mahout Monday is about Kyo, son of our Head Cleaner, Pjouk - an amazing woman who has also been with us from the very beginning of EVP. . Having excelled in the six month mahout trainee program early last year, it became quite clear that Kyo's position as a mahout was going to be slightly different. He became master chef for Ning Wan's daily rice soup, delivering it punctually every morning and late afternoon. When Pearl became too difficult, Kyo stepped in to give her mahout, Yan a helping hand. . With the EVP now running for well over a decade, it cements one of our core values - that the community are at the forefront of this organisation. Children that were once running around the site or strapped to their mothers back, have grown up and returned to play their part in the lives of these elephants. . If you would like to sponsor any of our elephants and their mahouts such as Kyo, or support the EVP, check out the link in our bio .

This short BBC film follows elephant keepers in northern Thailand travelling to the mountains to find food. Now that there are no tourists due to Covid-19, animals and their local keepers are highly suffering from it. Definitly a more complex topic than described in the video, but animals should not be the main tourist attraction on which a destination is depending on. It is time to reshape tourism. It's time that responsible tourism becomes a norm and not staying a niche. We all are responsible for what it will become, the industry itself but also we, as travellers have choices and we have to educate and inform us about the long term consequences of our actions.

Elephant archives 🐘. There is so much you can do to help elephants- visit, volunteer or donate to ethical sanctuaries where there is a breakdown of what the costs are used for, spread the word about ethical elephant tourism- but there is so much more you can’t do: don’t visit parks or ‘sanctuaries’ that promote trekking/riding/tricks/shows/painting/bathing. They are all unnatural behaviours for a wild elephant, and they deserve to live as naturally and as happily as possible. This has been a massive learning curve for me, as the first time I visited Thailand when I was around 18 I witnessed first hand a “sanctuary” that was anything but 😖. Education is the key to putting an end to the cruel use of animals for tourist attractions 🤚🏼 #dontrideelephants #ethicalanimaltourism #elephantsanctuary

The difference between a failure and a high performance individual is how each deals with fear. We are all afraid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A high performance person uses his fear to galvanize his actions. #danpena #penaisms ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What fear actually is? Fear is a feeling that something unfortunate might happen in the FUTURE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This feeling will makes us alert about our next (future ) actions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ That is completely normal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fear is meant to protect us from dangers. It is natural state of defense. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fears ultimate goal is to keep you 100% safe and sound in your environment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The best scenario is for you to stay at home, eat, drink, sleep and do nothing else. In that case you are safe. You are in your comfort zone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What happens if you give up to fear? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It paralyses you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fear can play multiple scenarios in your mind of "what might happen in the future" if you choose to get out of your comfort zone. It will do anything to keep you "safe". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But then if you choose to be safe... can you even call it life? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ No - that's bare existance. Being nobody. Doing nothing. Adding no value. Forgotten. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How about the all the adventures! Trips! First things in life! First kiss! First ride a bicycle! Sports car! Excitement! True love! Friendship! Rush of adrenaline! Extreme sports?! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ These are all to be experienced by using ENERGY GENERATED BY FEAR to move us FORWARDS, not hold back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How much time do you spend outside your comfort zone? - - - - - #thailand #healthymind #healthygirl #lifestyleblogger #lifeisbeautiful #lifelessons #lifeofadventure #lovelife #fitgirl #comfortzone #gratitude #grateful #travelgirl #fitgirlguide #likeforlike #like4like #confidenceissexy #confidence #confident #confidentwoman #bosslady #bossbabe #manchester #elephantsanctuary #elephant #selfawareness #lawofattraction #awareness

Two heads are better than one! 🐘🐘 Elephants are very social creatures, as the orphans in the care of @sheldricktrust remind us every day. Friendships formed at the Nursery often last a lifetime, long after the elephants have graduated from the care and been reintegrated back into the wild.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Take Kithaka and Barsilinga, pictured here: They were both rescued as newborns, within months of each other. They became best friends, and in 2016, graduated to Ithumba Reintegration Unit side by side. Today, they’re seven years old and learning the ropes of life together.💚⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⠀⁠⠀ .⠀⁠⠀ .⠀⁠⠀ .⠀⠀⁠⠀ .⠀⠀⁠⠀ .⠀⠀⁠⠀ .⠀⠀⁠⠀ .⠀⠀⁠⠀ #elephant #elephants #elephantlove #rescue #animalrescue #rescueanimal #animalsanctuary #animallove #animallover #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifelover #animalphotography #protect #wildlifephotography #love #bekindtoeverykind #elephantrescue #elephantsofig #saveourplanet #elephantsanctuary #conservation #animalconservation .

All good things are wild and free. 🐘 #HDThoreau . How awesome are elephants?! There is so much discussion about the treatment of elephants in Asian tourist spots and I find it such a shame that these animals can’t be experienced naturally and humanely. However this isn’t the case everywhere. When I met these elephants the staff showed nothing but love, there wasn’t a chain in sight and this elephant wasn’t even told to give me a kiss 🥰. :::: #chiangmai #thailand #northernthailand #asia #southeastasia #elephant #elephantsanctuary #quote #travelling #seeingplaces
