Throughout the years, we have seen rapid progress, causing the forest area to decrease because of some deforestation, global warming and some of many reasons that directly affect the population of Thai elephants have decreased considerably as well. This is what we must rush to help and fix as soon as possible. Therefore, it created an elephant conservation facility. It aims to promote sustainable wildlife, environment and local communities.
Our Samui Elephant Home has been open as an elephant conservation facility for over four years, we have never stopped developing our quality and projects in various fields. And with a clear intention of conserving wildlife, the environment and local communities, we have developed a clearer and more comprehensive project format. The name was changed and rebranded to Samui Elephant Home Caring & Education Center (SCEC) by some public and private sectors and universities to jointly create a complete ecotourism project. That is, all tourists, in addition to enjoying new experiences, also gain knowledge and understanding as part of this conservation. We have a professional team that will provide knowledge, impressions and good experiences to everyone who has visited our SCEC.
For our activities, it will be within the norm of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), where we will educate both Thai and foreign tourists. Especially children who will be educated with an accurate understanding of the environment in theory and practice. Our activities will include home cooking, viewing the way of life in local communities, learning about the sea’s natural resources, getting to know the flora of the South that you may have never seen before and including the elephant caring program. All these fun activities will help tourists realise the importance of the environment leading to sustainable development and conservation.
