Unchaining Captive Elephants in Nepal | National Geographic

In Nepal, most elephants living in captivity are chained for 18-19 hours per day when they’re not working. Carol Buckley of Elephant Aid International is working with elephant owners to construct chain-free corrals. The new corrals have electric fences that allow elephants to roam their yards without the risk of escaping. But the system is not always successful.

  13. As I listen to this my heart breaks for what animals endure bc of humans. Bless this woman for changing their lives for the better. Humans have choices; animals have none. Elephants are such INCREDIBLE animals. I have only just learned, after so many years, that they mainly communicate with a low rumble called infrasonic sound that the human ear cannot even hear it. There is so much about elephants that is quite, quite incredible, yet people abuse them and chain them up and use them for entertainment. I live for the day that using them in this way stops forever🐘❀❀

  16. When people say the big animals like elephants cause destruction in their town, I think they forgot that it was human being who had destroyed the animal's forests and habitation first.

  17. people that ride on elephants should be chained ….how can four to five people ride a single elephants…..such cruelty

  18. Very good . Thank you ……… πŸ’‘
    Tourists could play music for the elephants to enjoy seems most animals enjoy hearing music if reactions are positive that could be a productive activity for the tourists.
    Tourists could bring a special gift safe and helpful from their own land for the elephants and/or their caregivers like water purifiers or water pump etc. etc.
    Share some good suggestions to replace hurting elephants that can/could also benefit there watchers which gives some alternative ideas for incentive to enhance lives, create awareness, change outlook, and to strengthen/build a cleaner/kinder world for all life on it.

  19. Why are they behind fences, electric fences getting shocked if they try to leave? Why are they doing tricks? Why are people standing on them?Why are they living alone in corrals instead of with their families? Let them free for God's sake. Leave them alone!

  20. Thank you for all that you are doing to help the elephants

  21. Pl go to Kerala and see for urself how animals are tortured in the name of festivals and rituals. It will be very difficult to bring a change as you will get zero support from the Government .

  22. I’ve always felt elephants have knowledge and emotions, not like us, but comparable to themselves. That’s why I feel more sympathy for them rather than the captive cats.
