Phuket Elephant Conservation Sanctuary Hits Home

Category: Tourism, Posted:11 Mar 2017 | 09:12 am

During a recent Phuket Hotels Association meeting one of the leading presentations was from the founders of the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary.

Project Director  Louise Rogerson showed a dramatic video of the dark side impact of elephant training, shows and attractions had on these gentle giants.

Located in  the Pa Klok area on the East Coast the sanctuary is providing  rehabilitation, rescue and a care facility for aging elephants.
