Have you ever wondered what happens in the realm of elephant tourism in Thailand?
Is it really all that bad? Does “no hooks” really mean well for these gentle giants?
On our month-long trip around Southeast Asia, we sent one of our interns, Lucas, down to an elephant retirement park in Thailand to find out more about elephant tourism and the realities of it.
Amidst all the articles and videos about elephant tourism making their rounds around social media, we ask that you take this video in with an open mind, and if you would, share your thoughts and views about this topic with us!
We’ve been working on more investigative-style content, so be sure to stay tuned for more pieces like this!
