Pang Fai

It is a beautiful coincidence that "fai" means "light" in Thai, because Pang Fai has been the sanctuary's ray of sunshine since her rescue in May 2018. 

Sweet, gentle and curious, Pang Fai had lived in Baan Na Ton Chan, the village where BLES is located, for over 30 years before her owner reached out to Katherine to initiate discussions about retiring her to BLES. Now in her fifties, Pang Fai was worked for most of her life in the logging industry. 

Thanks to an international push for donations to secure Pang Fai's retirement, she will now spend the rest of her life enjoying a peaceful life, surrounded by other elephants and endless amounts of forested land.  

Her rescue was featured in a programme aired worldwide on Animal Planet, in a series called Dodo Heroes - Katherine's Elephant Eden
