This episode of Knowing Animals comes from Thailand where I visited the Samui Elephant Sanctuary: https://www.samuielephantsanctuary.org. I speak to one of the guides  about how they care for their elephants. I am also joined 6 participants at the Koh Samui International Podcast Festival: https://littledumdumclub.com/kohsamui/ I ask them about their experience at the sanctuary and the difficult ethical issues surrounding elephants in Thailand.
