Moo Baan Chang, Surin, Thailand (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
On April 18 and 19, 2014, The Elephant Story hosted the first elephant polo exhibition match in the history of Moo Baan Chang, Surin, Thailand. Moo Baan Chang, The Elephant Village, is home to 200 elephants, their mahouts, and their families. The Elephant Story and players from The Four Seasons Tented Camp elephant polo team played a two-day exhibition match to support the local community and the school.
The Elephant Story, in association with The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation, will seek to further expand these efforts to raise much-needed funding for the local school and to improve the lives of the elephants and their mahout families in one of the few remaining pure elephant culture bastions in Thailand.
