Elephant Welfare Must Be Paramount

There is an urgent welfare need in Southern Thailand to provide elephant health care; a problem that STEF is currently striving to address. There is also the need to support well-managed, caring centres for old or neglected elephants, and to provide more education to encourage better welfare and protection of the endangered Asian elephant.

Our Principles

Sis for a Sustainable future for the Thai elephant which we aim to advance through welfare and education projects while recognising land limitations and the importance of the Asian elephant in Thai culture

Tis for Targeting standards of welfare through the provision of veterinary care for sick elephants and by supporting centres that care for elephants that can no longer work or have been abandoned, neglected or abused.

Eis for Education which we aim to provide both in Thailand and worldwide by promoting our work, supporting research, and enabling people to understand and nurture the concepts of elephant welfare and sustainability.

Fis for Funding. We can only achieve our objectives with your support. We need to raise the funds required to provide better health and welfare for Thai elephants in order to improve their lives and sustain their future.
