    'It's time to make a real change, we are going to make a difference'

    We are setting up a foundation who will take care of elephants on a hands-off basis, where the elephants can roam around freely. Our goal is to take care of old, ill and handicapped elephants. We just started with two elephants. We are on the land of a beautiful resort with beautiful nature. This is why we will make a joint package with the elephants and resort. We want to offer a luxurious and completely animal friendly program and focus on education very much.
