One day old baby elephant

Category: Sense of Place

I witness the birth of this one day old baby elephant, born to his chained mother, In Surin village in Thailand. I was participating in the Surin project that helps elephants and local people to establish both respectful and healthy way of living. This experience was amazing and terrifying at the same time, I will never forget the crying sounds the mother made, calling for her baby when he was born.

Location: Surin village in Thailand
