Project Description



Name meaning: Darling
Arrival date: 7/11/2017
Arrival age: 40 – 45
Rescue location: Chieng Rai
History: Gan Da spent the majority of her life in the trekking industry. She was rescued from a trekking camp attached to a hotel in Northern Thailand, the journey to bring Gan Da to the centre took almost 24 hours. Thanks to Joan and co. for sponsoring her rescue Gan Da no longer has to work 7 days a week providing rides for tourists. When Gan Da first arrived she was very wary, she spent the majority of her first couple of days hidden in the trees in Project 4. Even thought she is still a very shy elephant she has gained a lot of confidence since.
