Santa Delivers an Elephant to Laos

ECC Press Release

Our hopes for elephant conservation in Laos increase with the birth of a new boy on Xmas Day!

Elephant Laos

There are so many things that make this a feel-good story. As you may know, the Elephant Conservation Center of Laos has not had too much luck with the previous pregnancies. The last two were carried to full term, but because of complications, the calves did not make it. This is not abnormal, but it certainly is a blow to the would-be mother and our community.
