Babies need care and compassion if they want to thrive. This is true of both humans and animals; we all need our families to comfort us and help us grow. Unfortunately, sometimes we are separated from our mothers.
That is what happened to a baby elephant named Dok Geaw. He is one year and nine months old, and until recently he was completely alone. This little guy was rescued and brought back to an elephant sanctuary.
He was taken to Elephant Nature Park, a self-described “elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand where you can volunteer and visit to help elephants, dogs, and cats.” The Park works toward several goals, including providing sanctuary for endangered species, rain forest restoration, cultural preservation, visitor education, and politically independent actions.
