Voor een toekomst voor olifanten

Olifanten worden met uitsterven bedreigd. Hun leefgebied verdwijnt in een alarmerend tempo, door toedoen van mensen. Olifanten moeten daarom buiten beschermde gebieden op zoek naar voedsel en water. Zo ontstaan er meer en meer conflicten tussen olifanten en mensen. Als de olifant verdwijnt, verliezen we een prachtige diersoort, die zo cruciaal is voor onze natuur en ecosysteem. 

Alles op alles voor duurzame verandering!

Bring the Elephant Home zet alles op alles voor de overlevingskans van olifanten. Onze natuurbeschermingsprojecten starten bij de lokale gemeenschap. We streven naar duurzaam positieve verandering, naar een wereld waar mens en olifant in harmonie naast elkaar kunnen leven. Sluit je aan bij de missie van Bring the Elephant Home!

  • 🌳🐘 Our dedicated team is back deep in the forest, working tirelessly to improve our camera trap set up! 
πŸ“Έ In collaboration with KMUTT university and rangers of the protected areas, we are collecting vital data on the population size and demographics of the elusive wild elephants of Mae Ping-Om Koi Forest Complex. Understanding their population dynamics is crucial for their long-term conservation. By monitoring their movements and behaviors through smart camera traps, we gain valuable insights into their habitat usage, social structure, and potential future risks of inbreeding and human-elephant conflicts. 

πŸ“šπŸŒ Stay tuned for updates on our progress and findings we uncover along the way!

  • We celebrate our majestic elephant bulls and their vital role as leaders. With their strength, wisdom, and grace, they guide and shape younger bulls on their path to maturity. These magnificent beings embody leadership, earned through their experience and deep understanding of the natural world.

They serve as mentors, mediators and protectors, ensuring harmony within the herd.

  • Today is world bee day! 🐝🐝🐝 Did you know that bees help save elephants, and that elephants help save bees too?
Or well, it is a little more complicated than that, as elephants actually hate bees: they are afraid of their stings on the sensitive parts of their skin, such as their ears and eyes. Elephants even have a specific bee alarm rumble vocalization that they use to warn others!
Therewith, bees are of great help to stop elephants from crop-raiding farmers' fields, and therewith they foster peaceful coexistence of elephants and farmers in Thailand.
Bring The Elephant Home uses special beehive-fences (beehives connected with ropes), that open up and therefore make bee-noise when elephants are touching the rope. Research has shown that these fences are mostly effective in stopping elephants from walking into cropfields, and they furthermore generate supplemental income, such as honey and beeswax, for farmers in Thailand! 
In a new project, BTEH is exploring to occupy the beehives with native bees (instead of European honeybees), therewith also contributing to local insect diversity. Would you like to support this project? Donate to the β€œBee the Change” project via our website (link in bio)! Or order some Elephant-friendly beeswax-lipbalm via Elephant and Co webshop!
