In December of 2019, we opened Kulen Elephant Forest, a safe retirement haven for the elephants formerly giving rides in the Angkor Archaeological Park.
By shifting the focus of animal-based tourism to conservation and retiring the world’s most famous riding elephants, we take great pride in having been able to make such a statement.
The outbreak of the CoViD-19 has negatively impacted Cambodia’s tourism in such a way that we are now fearful.
Fearful that we now may struggle to sustain ourselves alone.
Our self-sustaining model relied on tourism to finance our basic operations, and being so new, we did not have the time to prepare for this kind of contingency.
We need your help to care for them.
