GUYS!!! ELEPHANTS!!!! 🐘🐘🐘
They are such an amazing, intelligent and highly sensitive beings 💜 and just like me, hungry all the time 😂
I have seen sooooo many of my friends (all aware people who are Yoga teachers, even vegans) who travel to Asia and posting pictures riding on top of elephants 😭
Please, please, please don’t do it!!!! If you’d like to experience the amazing presence of elephants please seek out and support with your money places that are taking care of their animals and not just using them for profit.
PLEASE NOTE: 🐘NOT all “sanctuaries” are actual sanctuaries. Just because a place has a word “sanctuary” in the name doesn’t mean it’s an actual sanctuary! They still might be abusing, drugging and using the animals 😡
🐘If a place allows riding on the elephants they are NOT having their best interest in mind (elephants backs are not as strong as we all assume and they can have a lot of back problems from carrying people) so this place is using them for $$$ (fucking human greed😡)
🐘 If the program of your tour includes “entertainment” portion that means the animals are being trained to perform tricks 🐘If the park you’re going is filled with people and ratio of elephants to people is significantly lower most likely the elephants are being drugged to cooperate around that many people 🤦♀️ A sanctuary should be a place where they rescue and rehabilitate abused or hurt elephants and often other animals as well. They never make them do anything unnatural aka perform and entertain or carry humans up the mountain and will allow you spend the day with them, fully honoring, respecting and caring for each of them.
Swipe to see our day 😍 We prepared food for them, feed them, took a walk together where people had our vegan launch and elephant feed on their grass and then brought them back to give them a bath in the river. The place was beautiful and the whole experience was just amazing. We wanted to spend all our money there in support of the incredible work these people are doing.
So please do your research and support the right cause! All beings should live free and happy and well🙏 huge thank you to @sunbreakyoga for helping us decide 😘
