Comments / pictures

The location had been a major timber logging camp in the 1960s, employing more than 20 working elephants at maximum capacity.

Green Hill Valley began as a family operation, with Maw and Wynn as cofounders and Maw’s veterinarian uncle as project manager. The location, selected after careful consideration, is Magwe village, about 45 minutes by car from Kalaw in the mountains of southern Shan State. The resident elephants include two of the family’s own animals, plus five retired elephants from the Ministry of Forestry. Green Hill Valley’s 20 hectares are not a lot of land for seven elephants, so the animals have roaming rights in the adjoining Wet Pyu Ye forest reserve, giving them an additonal 60 hectares over which to stretch their legs.
