Elephant Nature Park is a unique project in the Mae Tang Valley in Thailand in response to the terrible abuses of domesticated elephants in Thailand. Elephant Nature Park relies on the income from tourism and volunteers to support seriously abused domestic elephants and allow them to lead the rest of their lives as elephants and roam unfettered as part of family groups.
The Abraham Foundation is a major supporter of Elephant Nature Park and aims to build its capacity and make it a model for “elephant” ecotourism throughout the world. The Abraham Foundation has paid for the acquisition of over 100 acres of land for the expansion of the Park so that it could harbor more abused elephants, the AF has also financed high end accommodations for visitors as well as started a program that serves to reward mahouts at the park for their important work.
