Meet Kamee, a 34 year old female asian elephant. She was taken in by @conservenaturalforests , as she used to work illegally, logging on the Myanmar border. Now Conserve Natural Forest gave her 80000 square meter to roam around. As they done with previous elephants. They’re reintroducing Kamee to a protective natural habitat, where she learns to forage, socialize, and care for herself in a safe environment, before she is released back into the wild. —
Conserve Natural Forests is a non-profit organisation, that aims to restore degraded tropical ecosystems. They do that with Reforestation, Education and Wildlife Conservation (Asian elephants & endangered reptiles). I had the chance to visit their project ground. They told me all about what they do and I find that organization like these should be put in the spotlight. Their aim is to restore the natural forest, rescue and rehabilitate animals and educate people on what they do. —
The beautiful thing about Conserve Natural Forests, is that you can see an elephant in the most ethical way possible (no riding, bathing or touching). The elephant will come over to you for her daily snack, and will leave as soon as she is ready to go! As they say on the website: “The elephants are not here for you. You are here for the elephants.” Besides this they will teach you about their reforestation project and show you the beautiful forest that they‘ve already build. You can even help with planting some seeds and plant your own tree. So with that said. The next time you want to visit any sort of animal, do research about if this is a ethical way of seeing these magnificent animals, or if there is a better way. If you want more information, help or visit the project ground yourself. Then visit their Instagram/ website. You won’t regret it!
