The heartwarming story of Faa Mai and the baby elephants at the Elephant Nature Park in Northern Thailand has captured the attention of animal lovers worldwide. As a result, Saengduean Chailert, fondly known as Lek, established this sanctuary as a safe haven for over 100 elephants, where they can live a more natural and free life.
As a renowned conservationist, Lek has dedicated herself to safeguarding and conserving these majestic creatures. Recently, a viral video clip showcased Faa Mai’s remarkable response to the calls of baby elephants Pyi Mai and Chaba. Faa Mai is the 1st elephant born free at Elephant Nature Park.
In the quiet morning at the Elephant Nature Park, Faa Mai’s acute senses detected the distant calls of Pyi Mai and Chaba, prompting her immediate and eager approach. The distance from which she could hear the babies’ calls was astonishing, leaving everyone in awe of her extraordinary hearing capabilities.
Faa Mai’s genuine care and concern for the babies were palpable as she lovingly approached them, offering reassurance and affection. ThongAe, another resident elephant, joined Faa Mai, creating a heartwarming reunion.
The free elephants gathered together, engaging in their unique communication, a mixture of trumpeting and rumbling. It was as if they were sharing stories and catching up with one another.
The deep bonds between these incredible creatures were displayed, leaving onlookers in awe of their emotional intelligence. After conversing, the 4 elephants decided to cool off in the nearby river. The hot day called for a refreshing dip, and the gentle giants eagerly approached the water.
These magnificent animals enjoying leisure moments are a testament to the sanctuary’s mission of providing them with a peaceful and natural environment. The Elephant Nature Park offers them a chance to live freely, away from the hardships of captivity and exploitation.
