Bua-sawan, a name meaning Lotus of Heaven, is a 6-year-old female elephant who has been here since 23" November 2017, after falling into a canal from a height of 4 meters. She had eaten on the hill after heavy rain, so the soil becomes wet, which causes an accident to slip and fell down the hill.
For this reason, this damages her spinal cord, causing paralysis of both her hind legs, so she can’t move her back of the body. In addition, her current treatment plan is not only to provide medication to treat inflammation and nourish the nervous system but there’s also supportive therapy and electroacupuncture therapy to attempt to repair some of the nerves in her back legs, as well as electric muscle stimulation to prevent muscle atrophy.
Elephant clinic has completed the construction and renovation on August 20, 2021. It actually used on August 24, 2021, by inviting the veterinarians from Chiang Mai University to treat and check the elephants’ microchip that was taking care of by the foundation.
The result is satisfactory when the clinic made the veterinarian has more easily treated and checked the elephant. After that, the clinic will continue to be used in cases of elephants require initial treatment
At present, there are more than 3,000 domesticated elephants in Thailand with many types of elephant problems, such as the excessive use of elephant labor, the lack of understanding and proper training of elephants, and the well-being of elephants that have been neglected
including habitat, food, and medicine. Now, the law for the prevention of cruelty and the welfare of elephants is still in progress by the government. Especially in the Covid-19 crisis, many elephant camps still lack knowledge and basic needs for raising elephants, causing
the welfare of Thai elephants to be even more worrying.
There is a lack of food crisis for elephants as a result of the unavoidable economic issues that many elephant camps are facing. Due to this need, Asian Elephant Conservation Foundation is inviting people for donations from everyone to buy bananas and corn to feed the elephants in 30 elephant camps as well as support the farmers.
Elephant Sanctuary Asia Foundation has established “Buying products was leftover from the farmers for helping rural elephants.”
This project is funding for helping the rural elephants from supporting the farmers by buying the leftover products on this COVID-19 crisis. However, the leftover or unsold product should not be rotten because it will cause diarrhea to elephants.
