BREAKING CHAINS & INSPIRING CHANGE: UNCHAINED ELEPHANTS’ SECOND ELEPHANT RESCUE IN THAILAND

Today, we wanted to provide a quick update on what we’re up to at Unchained Elephants. We realized early on that simply rescuing elephants isn’t enough to make a significant impact on elephant welfare in Thailand. While rescuing individual elephants does help and raises awareness about the underlying issues facing captive elephants not just in Thailand but globally, we knew we needed to create something that would have a positive and lasting impact on elephants in Thailand and around the world.

We’re excited to announce our newest campaign, ‘Unchained Sanctuaries,’ an online platform designed to connect travelers directly with ethical elephant sanctuaries across Thailand. This initiative marks a significant step forward in our commitment to promoting elephant welfare and transforming the way travelers experience elephant tourism. We’re sure you have many questions, so let’s jump right in.

HOW WILL UNCHAINED SANCTUARIES IMPACT ELEPHANT WELFARE?

Unchained Sanctuaries aims to ensure that every elephant experience booked through our platform is ethical, educational, and genuinely supports the animals’ well-being. We are dedicated to showcasing sanctuaries that prioritize the health and freedom of elephants, avoiding activities that cause them stress or discomfort, such as bathing and direct interaction. By doing so, we not only enhance the lives of elephants but also enrich the traveler’s experience with true ethical insight into the lives of these incredible creatures.

HOW WILL WE ACHIEVE OUR GOALS

Our platform will feature sanctuaries that are thoroughly vetted and certified by World Animal Protection, guaranteeing adherence to the highest standards of animal welfare. The UNCHAINED SANCTUARIES PLATFORM will offer:

  • Easy booking of verified ethical experiences
  • Detailed sanctuary profiles providing transparency about their practices
  • Educational resources to inform travelers about ethical elephant tourism
  • Real-time booking capabilities and user-friendly navigation

In addition, our digital marketing strategies will focus on:

  • Collaborating with organizations and influencers who support ethical animal tourism
  • Engaging content and targeted campaigns to educate and inspire travelers
  • Active social media presence across multiple platforms to keep our supporters updated and involved

WHAT WE NEED TO CARRY OUT THIS CAMPAIGN

To launch and sustain Unchained Sanctuaries until it becomes self-sufficient, we require a total of $22,353 (760,000 THB). This funding will cover the development of the multilingual booking platform and an initial six months of comprehensive digital marketing to reach a global audience.

Join Us in Making a Difference

We invite everyone who shares our vision to join us in this vital campaign. Whether you are an organization that can partner with us, an influencer ready to spread the word, or a traveler eager to experience ethical elephant tourism, your support is crucial.

Together, we can transform elephant tourism into a force for good, ensuring that every booking supports a sanctuary that truly puts elephants first.

Let’s create lasting change for elephants and provide travelers with experiences that reflect true respect and love for wildlife.
