Please join us for these extraordinary events featuring Lek Chailert, an award-winning conservationist and founder of Save Elephant Foundation and Elephant Nature Park. Her work has received international acclaim and has been documented by Discovery Channel, National Geographic, BBC, CBS, Animal Planet and CNN. She has been a Time Magazine Hero of Asia and was recognized as a Hero of Global Conservation by President Barack Obama. She is featured in the newly released and critically acclaimed film “Love and Bananas”, which documents the rescue of an elderly, ill elephant to sanctuary. As a world-renowned conservationist, she has addressed the UN General Assembly numerous times on behalf of her life’s mission.

Proceeds will benefit Lek’s Save Elephant Foundation. There are over 200 elephants in Thailand that have been identified in dire need of rescue. Along with their rescue, additional land purchase is vital to giving these elephants the home and freedom they deserve.

In addition to improving the lives of captive elephants, Save Elephant Foundation supports efforts to conserve Southeast Asia’s rain forests, community schools, and a mobile veterinary clinic giving free care to the animals in local vIllages.
