In 2008, the Xishuangbanna Wild Elephant Valley elephant camp, as well as breeding was established there. So far, five elephants have been born at the center. As an elephant lover, Bao Mingwei started to work as a veterinarian at the Wild Elephant Valley in 2000, after graduating from Yunnan Animal Science and Veterinary Institute.

20 captive elephants were imported from Thailand to the Wild Elephant Valley in Xishuangbanna for tourism and circus performance in 2007. They are rented from the Thai private sector and are allowed free range for foraging after performances every day, and have interactions with local wild groups sometimes. Three calves were born to this group in recent years.
