12 Mar: Elephant Rescue Mission Kanoon Rescue Fund Achieved

On the 24th of June 2023,we started our first elephant rescue mission in Thailand, with a bull elephant named Kanoon. Kanoon was an abandoned bull elephant chained up for 4 years in Mae Tang, Chiang Mai, in the scorching sun or pouring rain, with little to no food. With a mission to raise 650,000 baht ($19,118) inorder to secure Kanoon’s freedom and relocate him to a safe haven. We rallied the community, from NFT sales to crowdfunding, each step to unchain Kanoon as fast as we could.

12 Mar: Kanoon The Elephant – Igniting The Unchained Journey

I’m absolutely stoked to see our 1st elephant rescue, Kanoon the elephant, featured on The Dodo even though the story is bittersweet; it’s absolutely amazing! But I must say, getting involved in buying the freedom of an elephant, especially a bull elephant, has been by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. Kanoon’s elephant rescue mission actually began long before we started to raise funds. It actually all started because we had to step in and do something as we could not walk away from him. And despite already seeing it then that this rescue would come with a few challenges. We went ahead anyways.

17 Sep: World’s First Tokenized Elephant: Kanoon’s Rescue Journey

Ready to hear the remarkable tale of Kanoon, the World’s First Tokenized Elephant. Our team at Unchained Elephants has been on a rollercoaster of emotions—hope, fear, and ultimate joy—as we document this incredible journey to freedom. Kanoon, an aged bull elephant, spent four agonizing years in captivity near a garbage dump in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Shackled, malnourished, and with just one functioning eye, his life was marked by suffering. However, through unwavering commitment and a revolutionary approach, we’ve not only liberated Kanoon but also pioneered elephant conservation funding through Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) and crowdfunding.
