When you choose us, you not only support kind treatment of elephants, but also help save local forests! So far with your help we have saved more than 100 acres of land and planted hundreds of native trees and bamboo! Our project is part of an even larger district effort to restore our community forests. Our profits go to the following:
1) Buying Land
2) Replanting native trees and bamboo (1 bamboo sapling costs 50 baht!)
3) Fertilizing and maintaining new (baby) trees
4) Controlling fires- making firebreaks and putting out fires

To Plant Trees :
Visit us in the rainy season (May-September) to help plant new trees. During the rest of the year, contact us to see how you can help with other vitally important jungle maintenance!
Our Youth, Our Future
Thai Elephant Home is a forerunner in community-based sustainable development. Not only are we an eco-friendly, animal-kind tourist business that cycles proceeds into local reforestation and elephant rescue, but we are also looking ahead to the future of our community.
We believe that education is important. We are currently providing opportunities for rural hill tribe youth to attend university in Chiang Mai while living and working here. One of our students is studying community development so he can give back to his village, and two young ladies are studying to become teachers!
To Donate :
You can help by contributing on paypal and emailing Joe at email@example.com , subject University Fund, so your donation can be put aside for our young student's education! Thank you for helping us build a brighter future for our youth and communities!
