Elephant Conservation

The elephant enjoys a special place in the Thai psyche, and is revered by many. Nevertheless, many have been abused and overworked, particularly within the tourism sector, and there are now a number of sanctuaries around Thailand that are homes for old and injured elephants.

S&J provide funds to help support a sanctuary in Kanchanaburi and recently purchased and re-located a 41 year old female elephant that had spent her life entertaining tourists.

We also fund mobile animal clinics in Thailand that, in 2017, treated 250 elephants.
