Conservationist Jane Goodall has put out a plea to help elephants in Thailand. The animal activist and icon is collaborating with Save Elephant Foundation’s Founder Lek Chailert, the FOODBANK: BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL feed campaign.
During the Covid-19 crisis, many elephants used for tourism remained in camps without food and sitting in chains.
Donations and money will provide emergency funds to aid 1,826 elephants in 226 camps in Thailand, World Animal News reported. Many elephants are starving without financial help from the government.
“We think about how inconvenient it is to be locked down in our homes. We must understand that this lockdown has become a living hell for the beautiful Giant,” Chailert, who is also the Founder of Elephant Nature Park, told World Animal News. “COVID-19 has offered them a critically untenable situation and we must bring attention and relief to their desperate circumstance.
“The captive elephants of Thailand have so little time left. Already, many are falling down and dying while in chains. This requires a dire effort and a compassionate response from all those who love the elephant,” shared Chailert.
