The new park, established in May 2003, is set in Mae Taeng valley, Chiang Mai province, some 60km from the city, and has provided a sanctuary for distressed elephants from all over Thailand. Set in a natural valley, bordered by a river, and surrounded by forested mountains the area offers a timeless glimpse of rural life.

The foundation has also initiated projects like Jumbo express and elephant heaven:
Jumbo Express is an outreach program which provides emergency medical treatment to elephants working in remote areas and builds ties with rural communities.
Located on a remote mountaintop, Elephant Haven is a jungle retreat regularly visited by our elephants. Far from human encroachment, a visit to the Haven allows our elephants to relax in their natural environment


Founded in 1996 by Sangduen �Lek� Chailert, who was named Asian Hero of the Year by Time magazine in 2005.
