Travel Experience

Guests share in all aspects of the elephants’ world at BLES. It is a participative experience that includes gathering their food, walking with them to release sites and observing them relearn their natural instincts in an environment that promotes their welfare. As a self-sustaining environment, there are endless tasks that need to be done. The needs of animals are unpredictable, so in one day are never exactly the same. In addition to caring for the rescued elephants and animals, that very involved in local village life. The assistance is often required in caring for elephants whose owners do not have adequate resources.

Responsibility

Boon Lott’s Sanctuary creates a safe and natural home for Thai elephants. Elephants interact freely on 600 acres of forested land, and tourists are very limited to protect the routine and wellbeing of the elephants. BLES allows elephants to live in a natural environment that encourages them to rediscover their true identity and natural social interaction. Basic skills such as natural foraging, swimming, scratching and dust baths - all things that have been denied to most of our rescues for most of their lives. Additionally, They offer support and advice to local elephant owners who may lack sufficient funds to care for their animals. They are deeply committed to the village community and provide jobs and housing to several mahouts and their families. Encourage local participation in BLESactivities and promote education about elephants and their plight as well as the environment.

Business Case

BLES is entirely dependent on funds generated by guests to the sanctuary and donations from individuals and other foundations. Any amount that you contribute will make a difference and will be reinvested into our elephants’ care. By donating to the BLES mission, you are supporting our elephants, saving endangered wildlife and their habitat, preventing deforestation, and preserving a threatened culture
