In 2011, EARS ASIA led a successful international campaign to retire Sombo from giving rides in Cambodia. She had abscessed feet from walking on the hot tarmac roads and it was feared she would collapse and ultimately die.
KIRI & SEILA
From 2012-2015, EARS ASIA assisted with the care of Kiri and Seila at Teuk Chhou Zoo in Cambodia. In Aug 2015, we learnt of a potential international zoo trade to Japan and
immediately established a global call to stop the trade.
2016-2018, EARS ASIA Founder, Louise Rogerson, was Project Director of Phuket Elephant Sanctuary in Thailand. With a strong emphasis on animal welfare, Louise implemented the first non-bathing program in Phuket, creating a wave of change for ethical elephant tourism in Southern Thailand.
October 2019 - TREE TOPS ELEPHANT RESERVE, PHUKET, THAILAND
Louise launched Tree Tops bringing the first non-bathing project to the Southern region of Phuket. Just 30 mins from Patong, Kata and Karon, 20 mins from Rawai, and 15 mins from the Big Buddah, this beautiful elephant reserve is a must for anyone visiting Thailand.
