I have been a little absent for the last few weeks as I tick off a big one on the bucket list...travelling around Thailand and helping out the elephants If you want to do your bit to help elephants from the cruel work that is so unnatural yet still so common for these animals to go through then please do one or all of the following: ~Educate yourself about what working elephants go through in the trekking and logging trade
~As a tourist, do your research and don’t sign up to experiences where you can ride an elephant, see an elephant paint or perform in a circus act - this is highly unnatural and the elephants go through an extremely cruel training process. The elephants often end up with life long mental problems and sometimes injuries ~Share, share, share on social media cruel activity from videos you may find on YouTube etc. to help educate and inform others ~If you ever see a tourist book with these types of activities involving elephants you can write to the publisher and ask for the advert to be removed
~Lastly, If you ever find yourself in Chiang Mai then make sure you visit Lek at the Elephant Nature Park and volunteer to help the elephants. It is a wonderful experience and your money goes straight to helping elephants in their recovery after a life of work. Lek is continuously helping to save elephants and pull them out of working life #elephants#elephantnaturepark#elephantnatureparkchiangmai#chiangmaithailand#chiangmai#bucketlist#savetheelephants#education#travel#experience#visitasia#visitthailand#thailand#holiday#nature#naturelovers#helptheelephants#beautifulcreatures#travelphotography#naturepark#cornersofmyworld#spreadtheword#saynotoelephantrides#selfie
Alright, so here's the buzz about what's on display at Disney's Animal Kingdom-- it's a BEEHIVE FENCE! But what's it for? Well, farmers in Africa don't take kindly to Elephants eating their crops! And elephants are actually afraid of bees! So was born the Beehive Fence! The bees set up shop in the hives along the fences surrounding farms. When the elephants get too close, they hear the buzzing along the fence lines and it warns them to stay away. The farmers keep their crops and can sell the honey, the elephants lives are spared, AND bees get a safe home to keep on pollinating the planet! WIN all the way around! Happy World Bee Day!
When crossing paths with elephants starts to get normal. And all you can do is watch how amazing they are and admit that THIS IS THEIR PLANET TOO! They sure are one of the most sassy animals I encountered during this trip. But oh how they protect their youngsters! If we could only protect them as much as they do, no money or trade is worth more than such a beautiful creature. #savetheelephants
