Project Description

Chok Dee โชคดี

Name meaning: Good luck
Arrival date: November 2015
Arrival age: 50-55
Rescue location: Pattaya
History:
While visiting another elephant at a trekking camp in Pattaya, our team came across Chok Dee. She had been in the same camp for over 20 years and was chained up when she was not working. When her owner told us he was interested in retiring her, we quickly secured her rescue. After a long drive, she became the second elephant to be admitted to WFFT’s elephant hospital.

Once the vets gave Chok Dee the all-clear, she was paired with an elephant named Rung Thip. The two had previously worked together for several decades, and it didn’t take long for them to get reacquainted. Chok Dee was very nervous about her new surroundings, but her friend quickly helped her to settle in. Rung Thip sadly passed away in 2017.

Characteristics: Chok Dee has a large stomach and is sometimes described as ‘stubby’ because she is relatively small lengthways. She used to be very friendly and active, but nowadays, she prefers her own company and moves at a slower pace.

Sponsor Chok Dee today: Help us to finance the ongoing care for Chok Dee by making a donation.
