Baby elephants are being kidnapped to be tortured till they break. To work their entire life in the tourism and timber industry.

At this moment the Asian Elephant is the most threatened elephant in the world. Dutch Elephant supports the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand. The Elephant Nature Park takes care of abused and traumatized elephants.

The Elephant Nature park is a unique place where over 60 elephants live in harmony and peace with all kinds of animals.

Mphamvu

In October 2014 Mphamvu was rescued in the Kafue National Park at the age of two. The little Mphamvu was in very bad condition. He was severely dehydrated and had a deep head wound. All of this indicated that he had been wandering alone for a long time.

Thanks to an infuse and 24-hour care for two weeks, Mphamvu became stronger and stronger. It took a couple of days to let him display his kind and powerful personality. From this day on, it is seen as a miracle that Mphamvu is still alive! And because of the Lilayi Elephant orphanage he is feeling better and better.
