Visit the Elephant Culture Museum at the new eco-travel elephant adventure in Chiang Mai
1 March 2018, Chiang Mai, Thailand—At Elephant EcoValley, guests of all ages can now experience elephants up-close and personal while learning about their daily care, herbal treatments, history, evolution, anatomy, heritage, and the profound relationship between these gentle giants and people at this wilderness elephant museum in Thailand.
Elephants are revered creatures at Elephant EcoValley.
Education is a vital step to help assure that elephants survive and thrive as a species. Likewise, Mankind must learn to love and respect elephants everywhere. Appreciation comes from close contact plus learning about the extraordinary abilities that make them such marvelous creatures. Hence, our museum’s Mission Statement explains our goal for everything we do here at Elephant EcoValley.
Our mission is to share the elephants’ history, their culture, their current environment, and their relationship with the human species—compassionately and scientifically. The destiny of elephants is in the hands and hearts of people. If we understand the past, the present becomes clearer, and we can create a secure future for our gentle friends.
“When our elephants first came to EcoValley, they loved it so much they didn’t want to leave!”
These words are from Meena, one of the founders of Elephant EcoValley. “Now that happens to our guests, too.” EcoValley is like a living museum where guests interact with elephants as well as view informative exhibits. In addition, it’s an ideal educational (and fun) attraction for field trips from schools and colleges.
Kids learn like adults and grandparents play like kids again.
