1965: Born in Pakse ca. 1965

2004: Mae Uak was purchased in July of 2004. Transporting her the 1000 km from Pakse in the south of Laos to the camp was a very special task. Because the elephants seemed very nervous, the truck that brought Mae Uak and her 60 year old mother to the camp in Xieng Lom near Luang Prabang had to drive for 36 hours without a break. Three months later, Mae Uak's mother died unexpectedly. An elephant veterinarian flown in from Thailand diagnosed worms in the liver and heavy digestion problems for both the mother elephant, as well as Mae Uak.
