Tourists can be of a big help when they boycott certain “amusement”
which has been signalized as animal-abuse! They can file complaints to
the THAI TOURIST ORGANISATION, send an eMail: or a fax: +66 (0)2250 5511 ( 2 automatic lines) or you can visit them:
Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT),
1600 New Phetburi Road, Makkasan, Rajatevee, Bangkok 10310.
Tel : +66 2250 5500 (120 automatic lines)
Open Monday to Friday 8:30 - 16:30 hrs.
Closed on weekends and public holidays

Send a mail to a Thai governmental office with a site only in Thai:

Call the Tourist Police (they are English speaking!) when you are
confronted with begging elephants in the Sathorn-Silom and central
Sukhumvit areas, tel. 1155 (free call from any phone)

Warn the tour-operators in your country, fill in complaint-forms if
they are locally available, join the action groups with money or with
physical help and, indeed with as much photos as possible!!! Such
photos can be send to the governmental offices, but also to the
action-groups and can be published in certain sites publishing positive
and negative experiences as a tourist and sites where you can publish
News stories can be published in: NOW PUBLIC and in VIRTUAL TOURIST
Underneath I mentioned some of the sites of caring organizations but this list is far from complete.

Lucky elephants are going to heaven
and the less lucky ones can always be upgraded to a painting elephant

This is not a set to offend the Thai, I should do this in any country I
am living as in every country of the world animals has been mistreated,
tortured and abused, for cultural reasons and, even worse, for greed, "
business" and "comfort" . For the last group there cannot be a
punishment too harsh as animals are part of our globe, are part of our
eco-system and cannot defend themselves against our cruelty and

So sad....the more we fight to try and right animal injustices the more they pop up! When will it end? These poor elephants losing their moms and habitats and having to endure those horrible bullhooks! Very heartbreaking and gut wrenching!

noted both echo...i am so tired of humans using animals for entertainment and then when they do what comes naturally and finally kill someone that is attacking them and hurting them, they kill the animals!! SICKENING!! I will continue to be a voice for all of those that can't tell these sick monsters to stop!!!

Only humans hurt other species without any logical reason for fun, for sport, inhumane treatment by cold hearted non-humans that need not be on our planet. Thanks Echo!
