Documentary photographer Lee Craker traveled to northern Thailand to study the plight of the Asian elephant. What he found is an industry fueled by greed and funded by tourism with little regard for the future of this noble animal. He also found dedicated people committed to helping the endangered elephants.
This book came to be out of a request from one of Thailand’s most prominent elephant activists, Lek Chailert, who when asked what could be done to save the elephants of Thailand, said, “Please educate people”. This cry for education was shared by other prominent elephant activists in Thailand who played a large part in the research and and development of this book, I am indebted to John Roberts, Dan Bucknell, Carol Stevenson and many others who are fighting for the elephants in Thailand and around the world.
100% of the profits from the sale of this book will go into research and education, so that the fight to save the elephants of Thailand will continue.
