At Maetaman, we are concerned about the welfare of domesticated elephants and are constantly trying to improve their environment. We’re also concerned about wild elephants being hurt, poached and killed, the limited wild habitat available today, and the problems created when people and elephants live near each other as Thailand’s population increases and expands. We support the efforts to register all domesticated elephants, which helps stop the illegal hunting and trading of elephants and ivory poaching.
Elephant welfare management in this region is a challenging problem. Everyone who is concerned should consider helping to promote better lives for all elephants. The Maetaman organization has thirty-some years of experience helping elephants in Thailand and is constantly committed to finding new methods to improve their quality of life.
