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, Maetaeng Elephant Park decided to create a safe and friendly work environment that visitors to the Kingdom of Thailand would be able to help support by visiting them.
In 2000 Maetaeng Elephant Park started to teach their elephants how to paint. The idea was to raise enough money so that they 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
The elephants at Maetaeng Elephant Park & Clinic in Chiang Mai, Thailand, create paintings as a means to fund the Elephant Hospital located within the park. This facility provides care not only for the park’s own elephants but also for all elephants in the Chiang Mai vicinity. Approximately three hundred elephants benefit from these services, receiving treatment at no cost.
The park is home to over 50 resident elephants, and the annual cost for feeding them alone exceeds $700,000. Support from visitors and patrons is both essential and deeply appreciated to sustain these efforts.
