Photos from the 2007 Elefantasia Elephant conservation festival in Hongsa, Laos.

"ElefantAsia concentrates efforts in three main directions:- elephant veterinary care, educational/environmental awareness and economic viability for mahouts. ElefantAsia have developed a highly specialised mobile veterinary care unit; we continue to carry out public awareness campaigns and environmental education. We keep all factors in mind while developing sustainable economic solutions that will ensure both jobs for mahouts and the survival of the Asian elephant."
