Lek Chailert is the founder of Elephant Nature Park in Thailand, and she was there meeting with some visitors when nine-year-old Faa Mai interrupted. The elephant clearly didn’t care if her friend was busy and started pushing her into the field by wrapping her trunk around her.
“She pushed me along out into the field, directing me somewhere and I wondered what it was that she really wanted,” Lek said.
It turned out Faa Mai was leading Lek to the new baby elephant rescue, Thong Ae. Faa Mai is very fond of Thong Ae and wants to adopt her as her own. Lek instantly knew what this meant.
“FaaMai wanted me to lullaby her little friend, as she is so fond when I sing a lullaby to her,” she said.
They all settled into the grass and enjoyed the song together. Isn’t this sweet? It’s just another reminder of how intelligent and loving these creatures can be.
“It is so beautiful to see my little girl who has such a heart of care. I am so proud of this girl!” Lek said of Faa Mai.
