A better life for domesticated elephants in Asia, almost always in chains. A new project in Nepal, the first in Asia.
The first chainfree hattisar (elephant stable) in Nepal became a reality. This facility encompasses open land and forest and is the first of its kind in Asia.
Five interconnected solar powered electric fence corrals were created for two families of elephants (four adults, one juvenile and one seven-month old), which finally give them ample space to forage, explore and socialize.
A project by Carol Buckley and Elephant Aid International.
As Carol Buckley writes, “the idea of trying to save an entire world of suffering elephants is overwhelming, but helping one needy elephant at a time feels doable”.
