Malai-Ngun was rescued in 2016. Malai was used in the logging industry causing her many long term injuries, including blindness in her left eye. Malai was then moved to work in the tourism industry, where she was forced to work tirelessly as a trekking elephant for more than 10 years in the popular tourist destination, Pattaya.
Fortunately, our rescue team found her and with the support from Joan and Co. negotiations began. In the end, the rescue team was able to free her from chains and bring her back to the refuge centre to sanctuary.
It has been 3 years since Malai was rescued and her health has significantly improved. At WFFT Project 4, Malai now has 20 hectares to roam freely and express natural behaviour. She is enjoying her retirement, getting around the clock attention from our caring team of volunteers and staff. She will never have to work a day in her life again.
