Could we live with Big brothers?

How can we reduce risks and improve life of all elephants?

Creating the haven for them is an answer.


Baan Tha Klang village in Surin province, Thailand, is a hallmark of Asian elephant’s sanctuary.

Its unique and innovative concept aims at improving the living conditions of captive elephants.

By providing economic sustainability for their mahouts through responsible volunteer tourism.

The 180+ elephants present in the Surin Elephant Study Center.

The Surin Project helps improving these living conditions

and give these elephants the opportunity to roam freely and behave naturally.

Make them stay off Bangkok’s streets.


This is the only place on the planet that shows how human can be harmonized with big brothers.

Care and respect
