Comments / pictures

Mae Geao means "Crystal"

Mae Geao was a Karen-owned elephant who worked in logging until the governments ban in 1989. At that time, she was sent to Burma to continue her logging career for the next seventeen years. Two years ago, she was brought back to Thailand and put to work at a trekking camp. It was soon obvious she was too old to work.

Since arriving at the Park, Mae Geao spends most of her time wandering and eating. She arrived extremely thin with dry, cracked skin and thick scabs on her forehead and tailbone from being hit with the hook. She is easy to identify by an "R" brand on her right hip and her half tail, an old injury inflicted by another elephant. Although she has yet to bond with anyone, we hope she will make friends in the future.
