Kham Muen and Dodo are two sweet spirited brothers that live in freedom at Karen Elephant Home in Thailand. Kham Muen was born in 1997 and worked in the tourism industry until his rescue in 2016. While working, he suffered the loss of one tusk due an injury. In 2016 he left this life of pain and joined his brother Dodo.
Dodo came into the world in 2002 in a delicate state. He spent his early years walking beside his mother while she carried tourists on her back. He then later went on to perform tricks for tourists. He has since moved on from a life of hardship and has easily settled into sanctuary life with his brother. He and his brother enjoy meandering around the forest together, foraging and playing in the mud.
Kham Muen and Dodo’s lives are immeasurably better now that they are at Karen Elephant Home. They have lots of space to roam and be free. Or as we like to say, be more elephant. That being said, they still need your support. These boys require plenty of food to keep them healthy and happy and they can’t get all they need from their forest they roam.
