Ka Moon’s Story
Ka Moon was the sixth elephant to arrive here at Elephant Valley Thailand. Her name is an old Thai name for a lady. Ka Moon is typical of a lot of old elephants who still work in tourism and are unsuited to task at hand. It took us quite a while to negogiate to bring her here.
Her development has been slow but steady, much like Thong Inn, but we are proud with the progress she has made. It took her longer than normal to make friends with the other elephants and for the first few months she just wanted to eat grass by herself and scratch on trees. Now she is slowly making friends and likes to hang out mainly with Maddy and Lou.
Ka Moon can be at times a nervous female elephant and our care is centered around allowing the peace and quiet she needs to re engage with her natural environment.
A visit to Thailand is not complete without meeting Ka Moon and learning about the positive and negative aspects in which tourism can influence the care of Thailands National Animal.
