We need to act now

BTEH is dedicated to the well-being and survival of African and Asian elephants, fostering socio-ecological resilience in communities seeking human-elephant coexistence, and striving for a world where both elephants and people can thrive. Our community-based conservation approach, developed since BTEH’s founding in 2004, emphasises shared decision-making, sustainability, equality, and partnerships. Through our projects, we promote evidence-based solutions that achieve human-elephant coexistence through range expansion, habitat restoration and supporting farmers in elephant-friendly livelihoods and land use, generating benefits for people, elephants and the ecosystems they share.

For the future of elephants!

Elephants are a keystone species in the ecosystems they are part of. Elephants disperse seeds, maintain grasslands and find water, all crucial for the survival of other species.

The mission of Bring The Elephant Home is to increase the chances of survival for elephants
in the wild and strive towards a
harmonious world where both humans and elephants can thrive, mutually benefiting from
coexistence.

  • β€œThe problem of wild elephants coming down to damage crops in the local community of Ban Rae is increasing” - The voice of concern from local community leaders who reflect on the situation of wild elephants in their area.

Ban Rae, Than Toh District, Yala Province, is a small district bordering Kedak, Malaysia 

On February 7-8, a field trip was organized by local community leaders and the Ban Rae sub-district administration organization to open up an exchange area and share lessons learned on local management of wild elephants, mechanisms for community participation in coexistence between people and elephants. 

The wild elephant management outside conservation area, led by the Community Enterprise Network and Bring The Elephant Home, conducted a coexistence walk to explore and adapt agricultural practices for peaceful coexistence with wild elephants. Mechanisms for elevating alternative occupations and relief funds, such as the Tom Yum project and alternative crops, were discussed.

Bring The Elephant Home would like to express our gratitude for the cooperation of all parties in this occasion and extend our encouragement to the communities facing the challenges of human-elephant conflict.
  • πŸ”Š Sound on!🐘
Thanks to our fantastic research team, we have captured incredible footage of elephants in some of Thailand’s most remote northern forests using camera traps! Do you hear those squeaks? Elephants produce a wide range of sounds for communication! 

Squeaks can serve several purposes: 
πŸ’¬ General Communication 
πŸ’˜ Bonding 
⚠️ Danger
πŸ› Play 
πŸ—ΊοΈ Navigation

Elephants produce sounds through their larynx, but they can also modulate sounds using their trunks. Elephants have a sophisticated system of communication!
