    Freedom for the Elephants
    By - Aoife Bulman - Charitable Trust Team
    Although highly endangered, many Asia elephants live out their lives working in tourist camps: giving rides and performing in circus shows. Generally the management strategies of these camps are structured to provide maximum enjoyment for tourists thus maximizing profit, but this does not typically bode well for the...

    Elephant Paradise
    By - Aoife Bulman - Charitable Trust Team
    Last week saw a particularly stunningly hike with the elephants into the forests surrounding Huay Pakoot village. In one of the first hikes through the corn fields after the slash and burn land management fires have been passed through and it allowed us a dramatically different view from what we had been hiking through only...

    Two More Elephants in the Forest
    By - Jeff Smith - GVI Thailand Project Manager
    The past few days have been exciting for our herd of five elephants because there have been two new elephants for them to socialize with!

    Village Elephant Management
    By - Jeff Smith - GVI Thailand Project Manager
    Elephant keeping in a traditional farming community can be difficult, because elephants can wander into farms in search of food. This can lead to major human-elephant conflict because an elephant eating a farmer’s field means a loss of food and income for that farmer. In one night an elephant can destroy an entire...

The elephants are traditionally brought back to the village to forage in their natural habitat during the hot season. This allows them time to socialise with other elephants, mate and forage on a wider...

    Baby Elephant Eats Mothers' Dung
    By - Jeff Smith - GVI Thailand Expedition Manager
    Baby elephants eat poo. This is a normal part of their development and builds important cultures of symbiotic bacteria that live in their digestive tracts and aid in digestion. They aren't born with their own set of bacteria, so before they're ready to move on to eating solids they first must start their culture,...
