Boon Lott Elephant Sanctuary(BLES) is passionately devoted to creating a safe and natural home for Thai elephants. Boon Lott cares for rescued and retired elephants, allowing them to interact freely within 500 acres of forested land. There are no performances – just elephants. BLES strives to rescue and protect the elephants of Thailand from abuse and ultimate extinction.
BLES is on constant alert to investigate any reports concerning elephants in need, providing relief to these animals, and when possible, arranges for their retirement to the Sanctuary.
When rescuing an elephant in distress, BLES organizes transportation, communicates with qualified veterinarians, finances medical aid, and provides support to elephant owners. BLES takes full responsibility of a rescue from inception to completion.
As the natural habitat of the Thai elephant is rapidly diminishing, BLES seeks to purchase land as it becomes available near the Sanctuary, striving to create space for elephants and recognize their need for variety in diet and exercise.
When complete, the BLES clinic will offer opportunities for veterinary students to study elephant care and medicine, where such hands-on experience is scarce.
