EWN on InstagramThank you for sharing @sanctuary4elephants @Regrann from @thailandelephants - •4• Ethical Elephant Tourism Tip 4: Are the elephants able to socialise as they would in the wild? All elephants are incredibly social creatures with a complex social structure and social needs. . In an article from @sanctuary4elephants "Elephants are incredibly intelligent and uniquely emotional, they are an animal that is designed to migrate up to 30 miles a day, their family structures are complex, the extent of their society is profound. So what is it that we learn from when they’re performing arcane tricks in a circus ring or living a solitary existence in a concrete enclosure? It certainly isn’t the truth of these magnificent and majestic animals." . This is why it is so important to make sure, as you are doing sanctuary research that you make sure that the elephants you see are happy, healthy and surrounded by their own! Where have you seen a happy herd of eles?? Leave a comment and let us know!
