At the Elephant Nature Park in Northern Thailand, one of the staff loves to call for the elephants. Derek stood from a distance as he called one of the elephant’s name “Kham-Lha”, a group of elephants came running towards him and stopped right in front of him. Derek gave them a great big hug; he loves when the elephants show him affection.
Derek and Kham-La have a very strong friendship, she often comes running towards him like a puppy. Sadly, elephants around the world are used for entertainment and labour, the Elephant Nature Park is a rescue and rehabilitation centre where they have tried to rescue as many elephants as they can. They are doing a great job and it’s fantastic to see amazing staff that look after the loving animals.
