Activities of Thai Elephant Alliance Association
We visited Ban Hong for pickup all kinds of low grades mangoes for elephants. Thanks for lovely coordinate person, Pattaya Mahayana, she’s owner of mango orchard in that area. She’s introducing us to owners of agricultural market in area and picking up all mangoes. In that day, we transported all 3 cars which fulled of mangoes to Hangdong, Samoeng and Maewang area to feed elephants. All orchardists, owners and workers at agricultural market are very kind and we hope to meet them again in a few days.
This is routine life of mahout from Huai Phakkud village, Mae Cham, Chiang Mai. SInce no job, they lack of gasoline budget. In order to provide food for their elephant during this summer time, they need to seek for natural grass or corn stalk far from their place around 50-100 kilometers. When they get the gasoline budget, even motorcycle can be use for transport elephant food. In next month, let's hope that all natural food nearby the village will grow up and can be fed to elephants. During this time, all mahouts are willing to drive or ride their transportation like this everyday.
This is pictures of housekeeper and elderly group of Hangdong village, Inthakin sub district, Mae Tang district, Chiangmai. They are the group who collect and manage with tamarind for us. So we will use tamarind as elephant herbal for elephant healthcare. Thank you for donor from Aob Chang which means take care and hug elephants in Thai.
This amount of food will be able to feed 4 elephants for 1 week, rationed. (If we let them eat all, they will finish in a day!)
We thank every donors, farmers and elephant's friends for helping the elephants out!
