Our Story

Hi my name is Burin Ampai, but you can call me Bank. I started Bamboo Elephant Family Care with my father back in 2016, it all began when a baby elephant just 3 years old at the time was passed down to us by a cousin of mine, this elephant was so cute all my family and I loved her so much, her name is Noi.

My father and I decided to build our own elephant sanctuary so to care for more elephants like Noi, knowing that even though my government banned elephant slavery and begging on the streets of Thailand back in 1989 there’s still a hell of a lot of cruelty going on even to this day so I urge you, please, please do your research before choosing the sanctuary that you want to visit, I say this because there are many elephant parks, sanctuaries with bad intentions and wrong doings that are just doing it for capital gains.

Bamboo Elephant Family Care have 5 elephants in total and one on the way… Yes! Noi is pregnant. We don’t use chains, hooks or any other cruelty tactics like that, we don’t need too because our elephant family are allowed to roam free.

Thanks for reading my story and I hope to see you soon.
