Our two ladies, “Kai Mook” and “Pai Lin,” are on their quest for freedom

Pai Lin (Sapphire) and Kai Mook (Pearl) are both 40 years old and were rescued from a trekking camp in Kanchanaburi, They are both Kham Pang’s buddies.

They used to work as elephant show performers, then moved to street begging, and finally to elephant riding.

With the generous support of Pra Acharn Moche of Wat Pa Rattanawan in Nakhon Ratchasima Province for helping to free Kai Mook and the World Woman Work Organization for helping to free Pailin, these two beautiful ladies will be able to live out the rest of their lives in peace at Elephant Nature Park.

On the 1st of June 2021, our rescued crew arrived at the trekking camp in Kanchanaburi, where they readied two trucks for elephant transfer.

They built a wooden frame for the elephant’s safety aboard the truck, and food and drink were on hand.

They began their journey in the evening, and Kai Mook, who had not been transported on a truck in about 40 years, was bewildered and terrified, She ran away several times before we could calm her down and invite her to board the truck, We drove them for about 20 hours to get to ENP.

Apart from medical TX, the most demanding and challenging aspect of elephant rescue is creating the healing environment that each individual needs.

They have a lot of memories and mental disorders, Depending on the elephant, it may take a lot of steps or none at all to bring back their spirit and soul, The best healing is being able to mingle freely with their own species.

Kai Mook has settled in rapidly one day after their arrival, She appears to be at ease, playing in the mud bath, splashing water, and roaming about to investigate her new surroundings.

Her mind appears to be wide open, and she appears to be yearning for a family to join.

Pai Lin’s trauma appears to be deeper; she is apprehensive and scared of everything in her environment.

She accepts her new mahout, but she is not at ease around other elephants at the moment.

For the time being, they’ll stay close to their shelters until they’ve become used to their new surroundings.

Our veterinary team continues to keep an eye on them, We’ll expose them to the rest of our herd in due time, and we’re hoping they’ll join us soon.
