Samlee is a 60 years old female elephant who came to us from an elephant riding camp. In her life she has worked hard in the jungle moving rocks and was used for elephant riding for 40 years. While working in the jungle she had an accident and she lost her ear and tail and after so many years of carrying the riding seat she also has problems with her back and pain in her legs. She is blind on one eye because of a bacteria infection she got while working that no one took care of. Now she can’t work anymore. She came to live at Khaolak Elephant Home in October 2018.

We pay her owner 40,000 baht/month to keep her here and 8,000 – 10,000 baht/month for her medical examinations and drugs.
