Elephant tears. @phuketelephantsanctuary @elephantjunglesanctuary Meet Mae-Boon-Sri, a Thai Elephant who was saved days before we arrived by @elephantjunglesanctuary after over 50 years of abuse. In her early years, she worked as a logger whose main purpose was to move extremely heavy materials until she was over worked and eventually sold to various elephant shows. Her final job was at a riding camp before being saved by the elephant jungle sanctuary. Unfortunately they could only save her and not her two children who had died not long before due to neglect by her previous owners. These elephant sanctuary’s are not given these beautiful beasts, they have to buy them off the abusers themselves. These prices can be between £10,000 - £100,000 and they can afford to do this thanks to our donations and the purchasing of tickets to visit these places. If you happen to be traveling through Phuket or anywhere near a animal sanctuary buy a ticket and support the cause!
Spent the first evening with @anna.everywhere, at one very interesting area of Bangkok - #unicorn Cafe. 🦄 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thought they were shooting Instagram Stories seriously and they were actually secretly making fun of me 😅. That ain't too nice unicorns. 🙈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So much familiar things around Bangkok but walked around to enjoy street food and some street music. Watch the rest of the day in Stories today!
