Elephant Background Project
My name's Núria, I'm 22 years old and I'm from Barcelona, Spain. I'm a passionate, curious soul who absolutely adores animals. I have been living in China for 6 months, and there i could realize how people mistreat animals. After my experience in China, I went to Cambodia, and i saw with my eyes people mistreating elephants.
I was shocked and disappointed to see that elephants are being used as tourist attractions, performing tricks and giving rides, at your resort. You may not be aware that their "training" consists of systematic torture, which begins when still-nursing baby elephants are dragged from their mothers, kicking and screaming. They are immobilized, beaten mercilessly, and gouged with nails for days at a time. These ritualized "training" sessions leave the baby elephants severely injured, traumatized, or even dead.
I want to take action on this important issue and end y this cruel and disgraceful industry.
I want to go to Thailand to make a documentary to denounce the abuses of these animals and share it in social media.
Your help will be very much appreciated. THANK YOU!
