Did you know that the average lifespan of an elephant in captivity is 80 years??

Beau isn't quite that old, but was born in 1975!

Mahout: Berm

Beau was transferred from another foundation called the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand, located in Central Thailand. There she also had a wonderful time, but Berm, her mahout, was looking for a slower pace of life. They then decided to transfer to GTAEF, where Beau now has an unlimited supply of fresh-cut grass, sugarcane and bananas.

Beau is not a soft lady; she is a strong, independent woman with her own ideas in the mind. When she is in a good mood, she can mingle with most elephants, particularly her best friends Ewong and Jathong. But when the mahout is not around, she will follow her heart once she has set her mind to achieve something!
