Update on Sakor: Thriving in his New Enclosure

Last August, we reported on Sakor, the bull elephant that had been causing problems along roads and villages in Koh Kong. As a result of the hard work of our rescue team, Sakor was safely removed from the area and brought to the Phnom Tamao Wildilfe Rescue Center (PTWRC). For a while, Sakor was living in Chhouk’s enclosure, with Chhouk relegated to his night stall.

We are excited to report that Sakor’s new permanent enclosure was finished two weeks ago! Both elephants now have plenty of space to reside in, and Sakor is thriving in his new home. Sakor also continues to get along famously with Lucky, one of our female elephants. It is hoped that when ready, Sakor can be the founding father for a breeding program of Asian elephants at PTWRC. With Asian elephant populations rapidly declining, this program could be an exciting step forward for elephant conservation in South East Asia.

But the process does not end here. Food, medicine, and care for an elephant are not insubstantial expenses and we are still in need of funds to ensure we can meet our high standard of animal care for Sakor for the long term. To help Wildlife Alliance care for Sakor, make a donation today. Donate on Wednesday, March 13th through and your gift will be matched up to 30%!
