Thailand’s elephant whisperer


The elephant is Thailand’s national symbol, revered throughout history for its strength and intelligence. But as much as they are celebrated, elephants are also among the most abused animals in the country. Over the past four decades, Lek Chailert—known as Thailand’s elephant whisperer—has dedicated her life to rescuing abused Asian elephants and building an emotional connection with them.

Steve Lunt traveled to Chiang Mai, home to Lek and the elephants she has saved.
