1 HAND 1 PLANT


A REFORESTATION PROJECT BY PHUKET ELEPHANT SANCTUARY

Time: 09.30 - 13.00

Join us for an inspiring morning with the elephants and support us in planting 1000 banana trees as part of our “1 Hand 1 Plant” reforestation project!

Deforestation is not only one of the main reasons why elephants have lost their natural habitat in South East Asia, it is also one of the main contributors to climate change, and as Covid-19 has demonstrated, a potential trigger for pandemics. When natural wildlife habitats are diminished by human activities such as logging, animal species are forced together, resulting in the transmission of diseases between human and wildlife populations. We must take care of nature to take care of ourselves, and at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary we are doing it – one tree at a time.

The morning starts with a scenic drive to our Tree Top Lounge. After receiving your complimentary T-shirt, you will enjoy some light refreshments while we show you a short documentary about Asian elephants and why they need to be protected. Next up, you will feed the elephants. While they enjoy their baskets of bananas, pineapples and cucumbers, you have a chance to take some beautiful photos and to learn from our guides about the background of each elephant.

Once the elephants are fed, we venture into the sanctuary to locate the elephants. By keeping a safe distance and watching them from our new canopy walkway and observation salas, the elephants have the freedom to express their natural behavior, from bathing and playing in our pond to socializing with each other.

We then plant banana trees together, and you get to label your tree with a beautiful wooden tag. Between now and 31 October 2020, we aim to plant 1,000 banana trees at Phuket Elephant Sanctuary with your support.

Towards the end of the morning we head back to the Tree Top Lounge, where a delicious Thai vegetarian set lunch is served.
