What a better gift that offering new experiences to the beloved one sharing your routine daily life. Our day was filled with love, smiles and beautiful moments with elephants and kids from local villages. I felt so lucky to meet Mr. Prasop Tipprasert, who works with elephants for over three decades - as co-founder and director of the Thai Elephant Conservation Center and extensive work with the National Park Service -. He did an amazing job to stop elephant population decline in Thailand and aims to do so in Laos. There is no better feeling than sharing your love and passion to others. Our guide and each person we had the chance to meet today were a blessing. Here are the 5 freedom rules Mr. Prasop teached us today that are used in #mandalaotours for positive reinforcement : -free from any hunger: eat and drink in quantity and quality - free from discomfort : protect the elephants from the sun with mud and natural lotions - free from impact from the body : no ridding, no hook, no hammer, no chain - free from impact of the mind : don't stress elephants but keep them happy with family and friends - free to have leisure : let the elephants some free time and "honeymoon time" #savetheelephants #laos #luangprabang #wildlife #travelcouple #natureisbeautiful #elephantbathing

Boycott circuses that still use wild animals in their shows!🐘🎪🚫It saddens me a great deal to see this outdated and ignorant display of animal cruelty still takes place in Denmark. Elephants, tigers, and other animals that circuses use to entertain audiences do not stand on their heads, jump through hoops, or balance on pedestals because they want to. They perform these and other difficult tricks because they’re afraid of what will happen if they don’t. Please say no to animal abuse, don't go to these circuses and condone this type of despicable human behaviour. #animalcruelty #animalwelfare #saynotoanimalabuse #saynotoanimalcruelty #boycottthecircus #boycottthezoo #takeastand #boycott #peta #denmark #danmark #aarhus #tangkroen #cirkus #dyremishandling #cirkustrapez #shameonyou #ignorance #bethechange #endangeredanimals #endangeredspecies #savetheelephants

Elephant Train, Amboseli 2016 It is estimated that nearly 100 African elephants are slaughtered each day for their ivory. The poaching and illegal trade in ivory is driving elephant populations toward extinction. With about 400,000 elephants remaining in Africa, strong action is needed now to save these animals. Join us in asking member countries of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) to protect all African elephants and extinguish any possibility of legalized ivory trade. Enter elephantlovers.org today and raise your voice to save African elephants. Link is in my bio.

This beautiful creature has been rescued from trekking camps in the north of Thailand. Just a friendly reminder to not ride elephants or any other animal for that matter. They go through physical and mental strain, when instead they should be living a happy and free life in the wild. Elephant sanctuaries like the Elephant Nature Park are great ways to contribute to the cause. (savetheelephants.org)

I am coming to the conclusion that this perception of better than / lesser than in whatever context is the root of all evil. Whether this is about gender, race, sexuality, class, where you were born, or the environment. Only the idea that we are worth more, that humans are somehow more deserving can lead humanity to cause such immeasurable pain and damage. This is what we have to work on on all fronts!

Our African adventure began with a night in Nairobi and a trip to the @dswt David Sheldrick elephant orphanage 🐘🐘🐘⠀ ⠀ It was here that we saw first hand some of the extraordinary work of this very special wildlife trust (including bottle feeding, a popular time of day for the occupants!) 🍼🍼🍼⠀ ⠀ The main purpose of the Trust is to give sanctuary to orphan baby elephants, who for a variety of reasons have lost their mothers and would not survive alone in the wild 🌵🌴🌳🐆⠀ ⠀ We adopted our own baby elephant, two year old Malkia, whose mother was a very noble creature roaming during the times that David Sheldrick himself was alive. Sadly she was too elderly to look after Malkia, who would have perished had it not been for the Trust. She now stands a good chance of being reintroduced into the wild when the time is right 😊😊😊⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #elephant #elephants #safari #elephantlove #worthmorealive #savetheelephants #jointheherd #africanamazing #wildaid #kenya #africa #wildlifephotography #conservation #davidshledrick #davidsheldrickwildlifetrust

When it's time for a bottle.. 🍼🐘💚 #chooseyouranimal #wearyourcause #cya #pantswithpurpose Thanks for sharing @fiona_hardie 💚 #Repost @fiona_hardie ・・・ It's #mondaymilkmadness this time featuring #Ndotto. I remember Ndotto who was the tiniest of little orphan elephants nudging me on a seat, shown in a previous post of last year.....now, he is a big boy. This is due to the love and care given by DSWT. He is so sweet. Here he is slurping down his milk at the 5.00pm FPs visit...... then back to the dry pellets which he never never stops eating unless he is greeting those who come to him. Milk, pellets, hellos.....that's Ndotto. It's noisy business too!

EVERY 15 MINUTES an elephant is brutally slaughtered for its tusks!! 💔 -- In more than 50 years of conservation, there has never been wildlife crime on such a large scale with the illegal wildlife trade expanding to meet increased demands for elephant ivory, rhino horns, and tiger products, particularly in Asia. Controlled by dangerous crime syndicates, wildlife is trafficked much like drugs or weapons. Wildlife criminals often operate with impunity, making the trade a low-risk/high-profit business. Today, it is the fifth most profitable illicit trade in the world, estimated at up to $10 billion annually... -- But, you can help SAVE these animals by joining @WWF's global campaign to stop wildlife crime by helping them push governments to PROTECT threatened animal populations, get better SUPPORT for those on the frontlines who are being threatened by armed poachers and reduce the demand for illegal wildlife parts by encouraging others to ask questions and get the facts before buying any wildlife or plant product!! -- SIGN THE @WWF PLEDGE (link in bio) to help put a stop to wildlife crime today!! 🙏🏽🌎🐘 -- Incredible watercolour painting by @eliciaedijanto 🐘 -- #HandsOffMyParts #IAmNotATrinket #WWF #SaveTheElephants #SayNoToIvory #StopIvoryTrade #StopPoaching #JoinTheHerd #StopAnimalCruelty #VoiceForTheVoiceless #AnimalRights #AnimalLiberation #CoexistTheMovement

@Regrann from @savetheelephants - If this won't get rid of your Monday blues, we don't know what will. OneTone, who is one of the bulls @biglifeafrica are following in Amboseli came out to see what the fuss about swimming pools is all about and in typical bull fashion he brought his boys with him. So, our founder and president @iaindouglashamilton and his long time friend and founder of @biglifeafrica Richard Bonham decided to go and say hello. In our previous posts we have told you of the fact that elephants understand hierarchies and dominance and you can see this clearly in the video. OneTon's demeanor and tusk size shows that he is older hence gets to drink first. 📷 Frank Pope #Savetheelephants #Worthmorealive #Bulls #OneTon #Elephants #Conservation #Videoodtheday - #regrann

♥️🐘🙏🏼 #Repost @dswt (@get_repost) ・・・ When an orphan arrives at the DSWT Nursery, he or she is embarking on a journey back to the wild — one that can span up to ten years! Little Musiara is just beginning his journey. We rescued him when he was just six weeks old, after he was spotted trailing a herd that he clearly did not belong to. Seven months down the road, he's overcome some serious health issues and is now blossoming under the attentive care of our Keepers and a legion of mini-mums, like Godoma (pictured here).

Palm oil plantations have destroyed irreplaceable rainforests and displaced orangutans, elephants, and numerous other animals. Villages are being razed in Malaysia and Indonesia for palm oil manufacturing, children are being forced to work for the production of this so-called bio fuel. We must wake up and challenge the corporations who are destroying everything in their path for their own personal greed. #banpalmoil #boycottpalmoil #banbiofuel #traveldeeper #Indonesia #malyasia #rainforestrescue #savetheorangutans #savetheelephants #motherearth #surfing #surfriderfoundation #wwf #nationalgeographic #instaactivist #instagood #takeaction

In 2001, Baloo the American black bear, Leo the African lion, and Shere Khan the Bengal tiger "BLT" were discovered by police officers in a basement of an Atlanta, Georgia home during a drug raid. At only a few months old, all three cubs were frightened, malnourished, and infected with internal and external parasites. Baloo's harness was so ingrown that his flesh had grown around it, and surgery was required to remove it. Sadly in August 2016, Leo passed away from liver failure. The extreme dehydration and starvation he suffered as a cub affected his internal organs and cut his life short. These animals bonded under the worst conditions and abuse imaginable. They took care of one another and have been inseparable their entire lives. Noah's Ark rescued them, gave them love and medical care and restored their health, physically and mentally. Noah's Ark rescues and cares for hundreds of animals. Each animal arrives with a sad story of abuse and neglect. All animals must be allowed their Freedoms: 1. Freedom from Hunger & Thirst 2. Freedom from Discomfort 3. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease 4. Freedom to Express Normal Behavior 5. Freedom from Fear and Distress 6. Freedom to Live Freely in their Natural Environment 7: Freedom from Development of their Natural Habitat 8. Freedom from Poaching and Game Hunting We must make a drastic change to protect and save our natural environments and the animals who live in them. #traveldeeper #animalrights #orangutan #savetheelephants #nationalgeographic #saveourplanet #saveouroceans #surfriderfoundation #surfrider #rainforestdestruction #banpalmoil #boycottpalmoil #boycottplastic #banplastic #noahs-ark.org #noahsark #rainforest-rescue.org #insta #instagood #takeaction #wwf #rainforestrescue

WOOO! So excited to be hosting a giveaway with @theelephantpants 🐘 2 winners will receive the pants that I am wearing in this photo 🤗 All entry info can be found in the graphics that I made! 🐘 The Elephant Pants is a fantastic brand that donates 10% of their proceeds to elephant saving charities. Giving away free pants may seem to defeat the purpose, but I really believe that once you try one pair of pants, you're going to want another pair. A lot of us don't have the disposable income to find out if we would like online products like theirs, so I thought this could be the perfect way for a couple people to feel the comfort for themselves 😊 The Elephant Pants are about so much more than Instagram features & artsy pictures. To me, they were an extremely important part of my recovery from my eating disorder and way to try a new, comfortable clothing style that I'd always been interested in, but too body conscious to try. Wearing these pants helped me ease into wearing other flowy pants, into jeans, and gave me a reason to try out wearing crop tops again. I now own a dress, kimono, and pair of shorts from them as well that provide me so much comfort & help me expand my style while also helping save elephants. Many sizes are available, if you would like to check further, send me a DM :) 🐘 I am beyond happy to be giving away 2 pairs of the black diamond harem pants! I've gotten so many inquiries about them and can't wait to see who will be getting their #tepstyle on soon ☺️ You are NOT required to follow me to enter because this contest isn't intended for me to get followers. You also do not have to follow The Elephant Pants. As someone who has been in recovery, I know their content may not be something you'll want on your newsfeed on a recovery account that may serve as a safe space free of clothing ads. Like many things I do on this account, I am basing this off of trust; if you do not find their content triggering go ahead & give them a follow 😊 EDIT: International entries are 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 I will cover shipping costs if TEP does not :) And..... go!!! Let's see some self-love 😌🐘⤵️

When an orphan arrives at the DSWT Nursery, he or she is embarking on a journey back to the wild — one that can span up to ten years! Little Musiara is just beginning his journey. We rescued him when he was just six weeks old, after he was spotted trailing a herd that he clearly did not belong to. Seven months down the road, he's overcome some serious health issues and is now blossoming under the attentive care of our Keepers and a legion of mini-mums, like Godoma (pictured here). Musiara will spend a few years at the Nursery, and when he's ready, he'll graduate to one of our Reintegration Units, which will carry him to his eventual complete reintegration into the wild. • To support Musiara on his journey, foster him at: www.thedswt.org/musiara #trunkupwines Photo © David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust #DSWT #Musiara #MusiaraDSWT #Godoma #GodomaDSWT #elephants #whyilovekenya #kenya #nairobi #dswtnursery #africa #magicalkenya #savetheelephants #nairobinationalpark #saynotopoaching #racingextinction #jointheherd #DSWTat40 #worthmorealive

When volunteering with animals please do your research. Many organizations are scams and endanger wildlife for the sake of attracting tourists and volunteers for money. I'm hearing word that the Elephant World in Kanchanaburi, Thailand is an awful place despite the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. Former volunteers are reporting that the elephants aren't being cared for--they are just paraded around for visitors to see. When this was brought up to management the owner said things would change, but instead the volunteer program was cancelled. In addition, tourists are allowed the bathe the elephants, but it's happening so often that the elephants are trying to escape and they're being forced to stay in the water for hours a day. The elephants are becoming aggressive towards people because they are so unhappy and now they're being chained up as a result. If you're considering volunteering with animals think about this. If the program offers an activity that is for volunteers and tourists and doesn't benefit the animal, it's not a good idea. Look somewhere else. For example. Elephants are capable of feeding and bathing themselves. Tourists should not be doing this. A sanctuary should not harm the animals and doesn't disrupt their environment. Interaction with the elephants only benefits tourists/volunteers, not the elephants. Spread the word. We will not allow @elephantsworld to get away with abusing animals!! #elephant #savetheelephants #elephants #animalrights #animalwelfare #wildlife #conservation #thailand #elephantsworld #kanchanaburi #volunteers #volunteerabroad #travel #travellife #travelgram #traveltips #instatravel #instapassport #travelers #travelling #traveladdict #travelblogger #worldtraveler #travelingtheworld #bucketlist #animalcruelty #voluntourism #volunteerism #nomad #gypsy
