Adopting YOUR ELEPHANT
Elephants have inspired people for a long time:
To see their size and strength and to experience the peace and gentleness remains forever in your memory.
Whether it is to see a little elephant bull growing up or an old elephant to allow a relaxed and quiet early retirement. A life without stress, with individual human contact and extensive walks in the forest allows a sustainable survival of the species and a wonderful feeling for every godfather. The reasons are manifold – the fascination and love for elephants remains unique.
MakING a Donation
Elephant keeping is very cost intensive. Every elephants needs daily up to 250 kg of feed and one Mahut for his own caretaking.
The Tong Bai Foundation does not receive any state subsidies, but depends on donations and sponsorships to fund itself. To have another source of income, in 2013 in a cooperation with Green Trails Co. Ltd., Chiang Mai we have developed the possibility to visit us twice a week. Interested guests can book a day-tour in small groups with Green Trail. More than half of the tours price goes directly to our Tong Bai Foundation.
future for elephants
Elephant conservation has to start where these magnificent animals actually live. In Thailand there are about 3500 elephants in human hands. Taking care of some of them is our goal. The mission of TONG BAI FOUNDATION is to create a stable, animal friendly and sustaining way to lead elephants into the future.
