[ BLES: Boon Lott’s Elephant Sanctuary ]

flip-BoonsLott

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.

Protection
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.

Expansion

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.

Education

When complete, the BLES clinic will offer opportunities for veterinary students to study elephant care and medicine, where such hands-on experience is scarce.

[ Polar Bear Week – Take the Next Step! ]

It’s early November. It’s cold. It’s snowy. And polar bears are waiting for the sea ice to form. It’s Polar Bear Week!

Polar Bear Week provides polar bear enthusiasts with seven full days of celebrating their favorite arctic animal. The event coincides with the fall polar bear migration to Churchill, Manitoba, where polar bears gather to wait for freeze-up on Hudson Bay so they can return to hunting seals. During Polar Bear Week, we focus on how longer ice-free seasons are straining the limits of the bears’ fat reserves, threatening their survival.
