⚠️ Viene chapa de la buena ⚠️ (por lo menos no va a ser sobre el Coronavirus...)
Aprovecho que ahora nadie está viajando y todos estamos un poco aburridos ☺️ Hace un par de semanas conseguí ver un elefante de cerca en el Parque Natural de Kui Buri.
Tras el auge del “nuevo turista responsable o concienciado”, los centros de recuperación o santuarios de elefantes se han multiplicado casi igual de rápido que el coronavirus 🦠
Si bien no soy experta en este tema, le he dedicado algo de tiempo de “estudio” y así averiguar si estos nuevos centros hacen lo que realmente dicen hacer o si siguen fomentando la cautividad.
El resultado: no todos los centros intentan reinsertar a los elefantes al medio natural aunque sí dicen que lo hacen. Existen falsos santuarios que nos hacen creer que estamos cuidando a los elefantes mediante actividades (bañarles, darles de comer, acariciarles) que en realidad solo perjudican al animal.
Con toda esta chapa, solo pretendo concienciar, informar o avisar a esas personas de mi alrededor que tengan pensado hacer actividades con elefantes, ya que, como turistas, no siempre somos conscientes del impacto o alcance de nuestras decisiones. Querer ayudar, aportar tu granito de arena o vivir la experiencia es absolutamente respetable, ¡solo tenemos que encontrar la manera correcta de hacerlo!
Las alternativas a los falsos santuarios son:
1. Verlos en libertad en los parque naturales de Kui Buri o de Khao Yai (me imagino que habrá en algún otro parque).
2. Encontrar algún centro que cumpla con los requisitos de libertad del elefante (en el post de @cris.elefantasia hay varios). Si a alguno le interesa tener más información sobre cómo afecta el turismo a los elefantes, recomiendo el perfil de @cris.elefantasia al igual que un post que redactó para @kupernicworld (el link está en la bio de @cris.elefantasia)

While humans carry out social distancing, a group of 14 Elephants broke into a village in Yunan province, looking for corn and other food. They ended up drinking 30kg of corn wine and got so drunk that they fell asleep in a nearby tea garden.
I understand that everyone is struggling right now, but if you have anything to spare, please consider donating to @ElephantNatureP. They help so many more animals than just elephants all across Asia and have been forced to close. #saveelephants https://www.facebook.com/148043088597809/posts/2822474057821352/?d=n …

@nikwallenda uses skinny brew to fuel his casual walk across an active volcano 😬🌋
I use mine to fuel my morning yoga 🤪🧘🏼♀️
What are you fueling with? .

Honestly our hearts are aching for everyone around the world right now- and that includes our animal friends. Resources (donation and aid money) are being drawn off to assist in the fight against the COVID 19 pandemic and rightly so- but we fear the loss of funds rangers and orgs need in the fight against poaching and human/wildlife conflict too. We’ll be talking about a new project that we have earmarked funds for soon. In the meantime enjoy this virtual safari (photos by me )- I know I’m dreaming of my return - hopefully in the nearer future than farther. Hold fast, everyone! (If you want to know what we are doing to help our human community in Seattle where we are based- that will be posted on @roqlarue in a few days! ) #savewildlife#conservation#ecotravel#ecosafari#saveelephants#creaturasafari
A beautiful before and after from @sheldricktrust: #tbt, 2016: Wanjala was found abandoned in Tsavo East at the height of the drought. He arrived at the Nurssey emaciated and enervated, lacking the vitality to even take a few steps. Nearly four years on and Wanjala has returned to Tsavo, taking steps towards a wild life at our Ithumba Reintegration Unit — and it’s safe to say that his energy is back with a vengeance! Swipe (preferably with sound up) to see what we mean.

Olafo's! More Than Just A Store🐘❤️ Link to donate in Bio
Please continue donating and sharing everywhere you can. Thankfully Elephant Nature Park has started to deliver the food so many elephants desperately need. But of course A LOT more donations are needed as no one knows how long the tourist industry will be down. COVID19 has truly put these elephant camps in a very serious and dire situation. Our donations show them they are not alone. We stand strong and firm in our will to help all elephants. We know that what is happening is in no way anyone's fault. As citizens of the world it is in the most difficult times we must let our kindness and compassion shine nice and bright to defeat all darkens.
THANK YOU to all who have donated and shared! ❤️🐘❤️🇹🇭 https://www.gofundme.com/f/the-silent-victimis-of-covid19?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link-tip&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet

Posted @withregram • @_scorpione_62 Reposted from @ladyfreethinker Himeko, a 43-year-old Asian elephant, spends 18 hours a day indoors. Showing signs of zoochosis, she sways back and forth in her own feces and urine, frustrated by her lack of free space to move around. When Himeko finally does get to go outside, she is forced to perform for zoo visitors. This poor creature has languished in cruel solitary confinement for over half her life at the Himeji City Zoo in Japan. Elephants are highly intelligent and social creatures that need to interact with other elephants and engage in other natural behaviors. They also walk many miles each day in the wild. Himeko is cruelly being deprived of her basic life necessities as an elephant. We must take action to give Himeko a better life. Tap the link in our profile to sign our petition urging the Himeji City Zoo to release Himeko from solitary confinement and free her from her constant suffering.
