On 23rd June 2023, Unchained Elephants has embarked on their first mission to rescue Kanun, a 55-year-old male elephant in Mae Tang, Chiang Mai. Kanun’s current situation is dire, as he endures life chained up, malnourished, and with only one functioning eye. The urgent need for intervention has sparked a determined effort to save Kanun and provide him with a better life.

Facing the choice of being sold into the logging industry or finding a way to be saved, Kanun’s plight has highlighted the broader issue of abandoned male elephants in Thailand. These majestic creatures suffer without proper care or resources, making rescue efforts all the more crucial.

Securing Kanun’s freedom by breaking boundaries and innovating for impact

A groundbreaking initiative by Unchained Elephants is now in full swing, unleashing a remarkable fundraising campaign to rescue Kanun. This audacious endeavour aims to secure Kanun’s freedom and provide him with essential care, with a target of $25,760 USD (850,000 baht) to be raised. With 100% of the funds raised directly contributing to Kanun’s extraordinary rescue mission and provide a comprehensive care package that includes vital medical check-ups and nourishment. This vital initiative will ensure he receives the care, freedom, and security he deserves.
