I had a wonderful opportunity to get up close and personal with elephants at the Elephant Conservation Center in Lampang, Thailand. As it was a lifelong dream of mine, the experience was one of the best of my life. I spent three days basically living among these beautiful creatures.
I snapped this photo one day while visiting the elephant nursery. Mother and baby looked so utterly happy ― the scene was very emotional.
I will never forget those days I spent at the conservation center and hope more people become involved in the fight to save these wonderful animals.
