Southern Thailand Elephant Foundation (STEF) is an international charity (registered in England) which raises funds to support projects that promote elephant health and welfare in Southern Thailand. STEF provides free veterinary care to elephants in Thailand to ensure they can live without pain and suffering. We have a specialist vet team based at our new elephant hospital near Khok Kloi in Phang Nga Province. We also operate a mobile veterinary clinic so that our vets can reach sick or injured elephants even in the most remote areas of Southern Thailand.
We would love for the opportunity to send you some quarterly news and other content you might find similarly interesting regarding the treatment of elephants throughout the Provinces of Southern Thailand and our work at the STEF hospital and mobile clinic.
Is to provide free veterinary care for elephants in Southern Thailand to improve their welfare and protect their future. The Asian elephant is an endangered species, and it is our aim to support education on elephant welfare and conservation, as well as provide hands-on veterinary care.
Since our foundation at the end of 2017 (see our Timeline) STEF has funded the construction, from scratch, of the first NGO elephant hospital in Southern Thailand. Known as the STEF Veterinary Centre, it is based at Khok Kloi, and serves the local elephant communities of the Phang Nga, Phuket, Krabi and Surat Thani Provinces.
