‍JOIN THE MOVEMENT FOR
ELEPHANT WELFARE IN THAILAND

Welcome to UNCHAINED ELEPHANTS – a community of compassionate animal lovers and travelers committed to making a positive impact on elephant welfare in Thailand. Since our rebranding in 2023, we have successfully rescued two elephants, Kanoon and Kham Phaeng, providing them with a new life free from exploitation. We believe in creating lasting change through education, focusing on three key pillars:

1. Educating Travelers     2. Establishing an Education Center      3. Rescuing Elephants in Need

Our initiatives are further strengthened by an NFT project, integrating technology to support our commitment to elephant welfare and community engagement. Join us in our multifaceted efforts to create positive and lasting change for elephants.

1ST ELEPHANT RESCUE
KANOON
we believe that education is the cornerstone of lasting change.

On September 5th, we accomplished our first elephant rescue mission, unchaining Kanoon, a male elephant who had endured four years of captivity next to a garbage dump and had lost one eye in Chiang Mai. This rescue mission was groundbreaking because Kanoon became the world’s first tokenized elephant, paving the way for more to follow. We launched the project with a dual fundraising approach, combining the utilization of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) with crowdfunding. This effort, which combined 40% of thefunds from digital membership (NFTs) and 60% from crowdfunding, amounted to an impressive $19,495 USD (662,852 baht). This achievement not only secured Kanoon’s freedom but also validated the effectiveness of our business model.

Unfortunately, Kanoon passed away on the 12th of November 2023, as we were too late to rescue him. However, in his remaining days away from the horrendous garbage dump, he had the opportunity to enjoy simple joys such as playing in the mud, regaining his elephant instincts, and socializing with other elephants. Rest in peace, Kanoon – you will forever be our guiding light, pushing us forward.

2ND ELEPHANT
RESCUE KHAM PHAENG

On December 12, 2023, together with our supporters, we achieved another milestone – successfully rescuing our second elephant, marking a significant step in our commitment to elephant welfare. This rescue mission kickstarted on November 3rd, with unwavering support from our dedicated community and Somboon Legacy Foundation. Kham Phaeng, found chained both front and back legs, emaciated, almost toothless, and struggling with feet issues, became a poignant symbol of the plight faced by elephants in exploitative environments. Today, Kham Phaeng is not only free from the cruel bonds of chaining, starvation, and health issues but is also adjusting to her newfound life of freedom at Somboon Legacy Foundation in Kanchanaburi.
