Grant Recipient: Elephant Valley Thailand

Elephant Valley is an organization that began with the creation of an almost 7,000-acre elephant sanctuary in Cambodia over a decade ago and focuses on elephant conservation, rehabilitation, and habitat reforestation in South East Asia.

Currently, EVT is working to expand elephant habitat in Thailand–no easy feat, as healthy elephants require a LOT of space! Projects include removing refuse, soil rehabilitation, reforestation, and the introduction of the specific flora that elephants need in their environment including wild grasses, banana trees, and bamboo groves.
