Earth Day Celebration with Marasca Khao Yai: A Marasca Care Initiative for Elephants in Khao Yai National Park
Earth Day serves as a moving reminder of our responsibility to protect the environment and promote sustainability. At Marasca Khao Yai, we are dedicated to providing a unique experience for our discerning, eco-conscious guests while contributing positively to our natural surroundings. This year, our Marasca Khao Yai team participated in a Marasca Care initiative to support the magnificent elephants residing in Khao Yai National Park.
Marasca Care Initiative: Salt Licks for Elephants
To commemorate Earth Day, our Marasca Khao Yai team crafted salt licks specifically designed for the park's elephant population. Rich in essential elements like sodium, calcium, and potassium, these mineral sources contribute to the growth and health of the elephants. By providing these vital nutrients, we help maintain a harmonious balance between humans and the natural world, as it discourages elephants from seeking salt in potentially harmful ways, such as consuming salty soil or raiding crops.
Exploring Khao Yai National Park
Established in 1962, Khao Yai National Park is Thailand's first national park and holds the distinction of being a UNESCO World Heritage site. Covering over 2,168 square kilometers, the park is a haven for diverse flora and fauna, including elephants, tigers, gibbons, and more than 300 species of birds. Its verdant forests, stunning waterfalls, and rich biodiversity captivate nature enthusiasts and wildlife lovers worldwide.
The Elephant Population in Khao Yai National Park
Khao Yai National Park serves as a sanctuary for approximately 200 wild elephants, making it one of Thailand's most crucial habitats for this endangered species. The park's unwavering commitment to conserving and protecting these gentle giants has played a significant role in sustaining a healthy elephant population.
