It was a great experience. This is another step in the right direction to preserving as you put it Thailand's beautiful icon and I hope it works and is not too late. I don't know the breeding capabilities of older elephants but I guess it's not good. Let's hope some of the other projects bear a new born calf or two and the ones like the Lampang project add years to the lives of the elder generation. I love the top photo but I hope he's not going to play around with that using his trunk. .-= Martyn´s last blog ..<a href="http://www.thaisabai.org/2009/10/kanchanaburi-erawan-waterfall/" rel="nofollow">Three Steps To Heaven – Kanchanaburi’s Erawan Waterfall</a> =-.

But as the human population grows, it pushes out the wildlife. And as the aged elephants die off, the sanctuaries won't be needed either. Then Thai elephants will only been seen in zoos. Sigh. Such gloomy thoughts. It feels like a Monday. .-= Catherine´s last blog ..<a href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/womenlearnthai/PKcd/~3/Wl_dH6xoPjM/" rel="nofollow">Interview: Benjawan Poomsan Becker</a> =-.
