There once were as many as 4,000 elephants working with their mahouts in the forests of Thailand...

But when the government stopped the destruction of the forests at the end of the 1980s, many of the mahouts, or elephant keepers, moved with their animals to the large cities. This is also what Non Yamdee did. He lives with his 35-year-old elephant cow Poon Thap on the outskirts of Bangkok. But now he has heard about a new elephant camp in southern Thailand which allows mahouts and their animals to make a living. He wants to go there. GEOlino Reportage accompanied him and Poon Thap on their adventurous trek.
