The elephants’ guide to social distancing
Are you going a bit stir-crazy at home? Maybe you need some tips on how to stay safe... and sane?
Here’s a little guide to social distancing, elephant style!
Stay at home if possible
Keep a safe distance from others if you must go out
Wash your hands regularly
Avoid touching your face
Avoid panic buying food and toilet paper
The elephants in these photos are from Following Giants – a higher welfare, elephant-friendly venue in Koh Lanata, Thailand. Since the end of last year, they have been giving elephants who have suffered in the entertainment and logging industries a new, happier life.
Venues like Following Giants rely on responsible tourism, so the following months are going to be difficult. Thanks to your support, these elephants and many others will continue to receive food and vet care.
On behalf of everyone at World Animal Protection, wishing you and your loved ones stay safe.
