Comments / pictures

From the website for Elephant Special Tours in Thaland
Before she came to our camp, Mae Boonsin spent most of her lifetime alone in the forest. Now she has found many new friends and enjoys living together with other elephants in a Herd. She is free to develop and to build up her musculature, which was quite weak when she first came to us. Mae Boonsin is part of the Tong-Bai Foundation and due to her work with tourists in the camp of Elephant Special Tours she does her share to earn her keep at the Foundation.
