International Women’s Day: Wild Animal Warrior Helps Thai Tourist Venue Become Elephant Friendly

Posted on 03/08/2021 by World Animal Protection US

This International Women’s Day (March 8), we’re celebrating Dee Kenyon, our Elephant Venue Project Manager in Thailand. She helped an elephant venue transition from low welfare conditions, where elephants were chained up 23 hours a day and released only for tourists to ride, bathe or directly feed them – to one of observation only where the elephants are free to be elephants.
