Where it all began

The Hutsadin Elephant foundation was  started by three local businessmen to rescue elephants abandoned by their owners due to ill health, old age or simply because they are unable to work any longer. The foundation is a non-profit organisation and any funds received directly benefit the elephants.

 

All paid staff are locally employed Thai's, therefore providing  employment for approximately 15 people. Of these one is employed for each working elephant who is called a mahout, he is responsible for it’s welfare, care and wellbeing. The mahouts also guide their elephant when walking with tourists. The rest of the staff are responsible for the day to day running of the foundation.

FRIENDS OF THE HUTSADIN ELEPHANT FOUNDATION are a  small band of unpaid volunteers who help to look after the elephants and help to administer medication under the suppervision of a professional Veterinarian and ensure their general health is maintained to a high standard. 

Additionally volunteers and sponsors also do behind the scene work such as fundraising, brochures, facebook, tripadvisor and this website.

Anyone wishing to volunteer can do so by contacting the foundation.
