“In the past, There were not many people who knew, where did the elderly elephants live after they were not able to work. Where did they live and what did they do? What happened for their life. When they died, buried or cremated?.”

Where is the elephant cemetery? Truly, from Mr.Choochart Kalmapijit who found The Maesa Elephant Camp. He said that the elephants, after retired, we led them free in the jungle nearby Maesa Elephant Camp.

Where is the elephant cemetery? Truly, from Mr.Choochart Kalmapijit who found The Maesa Elephant Camp. He said that the elephants, after retired, we led them free in the jungle nearby Maesa Elephant Camp. We have to take care of them because they do not know how to survive by themselves. The problems when the elephants could not work, there was no income for the family, the mahout had to go out for earning, elderly elephants were left alone in the jungle, they felt lonely like people. They were alone until they passed away, this is the purpose that Mr Choochart wants to change the life of the elderly elephants.

Founded in 1976

Located in Massa, Maerim, Chiang Mai, Thailand
