We hope we can save these gentle majestic creatures!
The elephants at this sanctuary are rescues from the timber trade, which has been outlawed through most of Asia. These animals hauled timber for these companies and when they were required to shut down, the elephants had to be placed somewhere. Asian elephants differ from African elephants because they are smaller, with larger brains, and more nimble due to their anatomy to their shape. This is why they are described as “small and crafty.” Sanctuaries like Green Hill Valley Elephant Camp make it possible for people to visit these giant pachyderms without causing them harm. We hope that places like this sanctuary will help conserve the lives of elephants so future generations can enjoy them too
This is one happy elephant now that they are free to roam and not slaves of the timber trade.
