THE WAEW FOOD PROGRAMME, EINDHOVENhttp://www.thewaewfoodprogramme.com
Let’s make the elephant happy again
The elephant is the national symbol of Thailand. In Thai society, elephants have played a substantial role in manual labor, iconography, and the tourism industry. The history and culture of elephants are all factors that must be considered when caring for elephants, as well as how to create a sustainable condition for elephants in tourism. A variety of solutions must be considered and implemented to ensure the well-being of elephants. While the covid-19 crisis has damaged and halted the country’s tourism industry, the mahout can no longer afford to feed them without the revenue generated by the tourism industry. This project proposes to support the elephants in Thailand and The Netherlands, by using the paper made from elephant poo in Thailand and the profit of the sales will support the elephants in Dutch zoos. The money will be spent towards providing food, medical care, and shelter.
