Description

Situated in over 90,000 acres of luscious protected rainforest near the border between

Thailand and Myanmar, Living In the Forest with Elephants (LIFE) is dedicated to preserving the magnificent forest and caring for the rescued elephants that call it home.

Motivation

We depend on the generosity of our supporters to meet the growing needs our communities face. Every little bit helps us to reach our goals and support more mahouts and elephants. As we expand our tourism offerings, we need to reach out to responsible travellers and responsible travel businesses. We offer unforgettable experiences staying in our village in the heart of the rainforest near elephants living wild and free. Tourism is vital to ensure that our elephants and their forest home are valued and protected long into the future.

Species or habitats

The Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), also known as the Asiatic elephant, is a species of elephant distributed throughout the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia, from India in the west, Nepal in the north, Sumatra in the south, and to Borneo in the east (Wikipedia). The Asian elephant is the largest living land animal in Asia, and one of only three living species worldwide.
