Founded in 2001 by Sebastien Duffillot & Gilles Maurer ElefantAsia utilises the knowledge of international experts from around the world including the President of ElefantAsia Dr Norin Chai, senior veterinarian at the French National Museum of Natural History.
Much of our work is conducted in the Sayaboury Province of Laos, a region home to 75% of the nation’s domesticated elephant population and one of Laos’ largest remaining wild elephant populations. With the traditional mahout culture still alive and active in Sayaboury, ElefantAsia strives to achieve a balance between wildlife utilization and effective species conservation and breeding.
