Along the river of history,the elephants have been used to the working hard labour, to move the heavy weights in jungles In recent years,they were considered as the doll to absorb the tourists,by the way of playing magic shows in the entertainments and going hiking with bearing people on the back. even they were abused by the trainers who always deliberately making them get injured.
At the Elephant Care Park Phuket, elephants are free and happy. We are proud of of protecting them, as our mission is to bring more elephants health, freedom and happiness.
We provide a sanctuary for elephants in a progressive and highly responsible manner, with a focus on elephant eco-tourism, outreach to people in Thailand and around the world, and education elephant care and the plight of Asian elephants.
It is estimated that at the turn of the century, Asian elephant numbers were approximately 100,000 in Thailand and likely in the millions globally. However, currently worldwide the population has decreased to around 30,000, of these, only 2,500 – 4,000 live in Thailand, and most of those live in captivity. Unfortunately, increases in the human population tend to lead to reduction in the number of living elephants, the main reason for this being poaching and loss of habitat.
We have five adult elephants and one baby elephant.
We can offer free pick-up services in some hotels and villas in phuket, with extra charges for remote areas，
