Elephant in Thai Culture

Not only health aspect that we have concerned, we also try to look over all aspects related to elephant – elephant in Thai culture is then come cross. Due to elephant and Thai people are having closely relationship since a very long time ago, thus it would be very worthwhile if there is some organization study or research on this topic.

In collaborative between Elephant Research and Education Center and Center for the Promotion of Arts and Culture, Chiang Mai University, we study and collect the data about elephant related culture in Northern part of Thailand. These data are then published for using as an information in the future. So far, we collected the data about using Thai herbs for treatment, how to train the elephant by tribe way, elephant and Thai meditation etc.
