Elephant Food Campaign
During this unprecedented time brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, travel restrictions have caused a near total decline in tourism in Thailand and Samui Elephant Sanctuary has had to temporarily close. If you would like to support our elephants you can purchase an elephant food package to help feed our herds during these challenging times. Thank you for your support.
