Elephants are remarkable. It’s time treat them with the dignity and respect they deserve.
A bull elephant was killed in Kala Wawa National Park, Sri Lanka. His large herd came to mourn and pay their respects on his passing.
Lek Chailert is coming back to the states!
We are incredibly excited to share Lek Chailert is coming to the US for a speaking tour! Please join us for a screening of @loveandbananasmovie

Check out Noi Na! The star of L&B! In the words of @lek_chailert
: “if you stay overnight at our project you will hear the elephant play and trumpet very loud. That is likely Noi Nah. Every evening she looks forward not only to dinner , but also to play. Since rescue, Noi Nah still bears the trauma of her difficult past. She is also shy and fearful of other elephants, except her friend, Daotong. In her shelter she feels more confident. She trusts to the safety of her room and she starts to play like a child. After play, she will often fall asleep. We are so happy to see these moments of joy and self expression. We hope that one day her past won't wear so hard on her and that she will be as confident in the field, to play in the river or deep mud.” ❤️🍌🐘#SaveElephants #TeamBanana
