Elephant Art in Thailand
Elephant Art Online is a close partner of Maetaeng Elephant Park & Clinic in Thailand. Maetaeng Elephant Park was formed in the early 90s from the result of the ban on Logging in Thailand in 1989. Seeing increased numbers of elephants forced to roam the city streets and take up work in the Illegal logging trade, we decided to create a safe and friendly work environment that visitors to the Kingdom of Thailand would be able to help support by visiting us.
In 2000 we started to teach our elephants how to paint. The idea was to raise enough money so that we could build an elephant hospital. In 2006 Maetaeng Elephant Park & Clinic became the first government licensed elephant hospital in Northern Thailand.
Our elephants are in our hearts
Why we do this
Our elephants paint artworks to fund the Elephant Hospital at Maetaeng Elephant Park & Clinic in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We provide care not just for our own elephants, but for all elephants in the Chiang Mai vicinity. Nearly three hundred elephants benefit from our services, all treated without cost.
We have over 50 resident elephants at our park, and the cost for only feeding them exceeds $700,000 per year.
Your support is both needed and appreciated.
