Allie has lived with this little elephant since the day she was born. As you can see, they have developed quite the bond. The video was taken at an elephant camp that shares property with the Chai Lai Orchid.
The Chai Lai Orchid is an ecolodge in Northern Thailand that shares property with an elephant camp with 12 elephants. After two years of watching this herd of elephants be used for mass tours, The Chai Lai Orchid is trying to rescue this family of elephants and create a sanctuary for them in Northern Thailand.
Elephants are incredibly intelligent and emotional creatures, and baby elephants need love and care to thrive just as readily as a human child does. Luckily, it looks like neither of these things are in short supply at Chai Lai Orchid, and we hope that this baby grows up to be happy and strong.
