History: Nam Chok was rescued from a trekking camp in Ratchaburi Province, where she worked for many years providing rides as a tourist attraction. She was retired to WFFT because she had become too aggressive to handle. Her Mahout came with her and stayed for 2 days, to make sure she settled in properly. Now at WFFT, Nam Chok is no longer forced to provide rides and is free to be a feisty and assertive elephant. She is easily recognisable by her very unique pair of thin, sharp tushes.
Nam Chok’s Story
Rescued elephant Nam Chok has taken a little longer getting used to her new surroundings than expected. She has been quite nervous of the other elephants so we have been slowly introducing her to WFFT's Project 4 area and the herd.
