The Elephant Whisperer in Thailand

How do you put an elephant to sleep? Apparently you sing it a lullaby like this elephant whisperer in Thailand. Sangduen “Lek” Chailert is the found of the Save Elephant Foundation in Thailand. It’s a wonderful non-profit organization which is dedicated to providing care and assistance to Thailand’s captive elephant population.

Lek has been working with elephants for a long time and it certainly shows as she sweetly sings to the gentle giant and the beautiful creature relaxes right away.

The elephant obviously trusts her as much as she trusts it will not crush her and it is an incredible thing to watch.


Now only if we could get our kids to sleep so quickly!
