Elephant lovers from across the country are feeding the elephants in Palin Kan Thayar elephant camp online. However, according to U Myo Min Ko, Assistant Manager from the camp, the camp is closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak in NyaungU Township, Mandalay Region.
The Palin Kan Thayar elephant camp, located near the west Palin village beside the Myingyan-Pakokku road in NyaungU Township, was opened by the Myanmar Timber Enterprise of the Ministry of Natural Resource and Environmental Conservation and the camp is temporarily shut down since 25 March 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. During the closure of the elephant camp, the number of people feeding the elephant buffet has increased to more than 175 times, and there are more bookings online.
A total of 22 elephant camps have been opened in regions and states of the country, and the elephant feeding can be done by contacting the elephant camps’ pages. The buffet includes sugarcane, grass, banana, pumpkin, watermelon, cucumber, mango, coconut and corn and seasonal crops. It costs K30,000 to K50,000 per meal, and K100,000 can be donated for seven elephants a day.
Those who would like to donate can contact Assistant Manager U Myo Min Ko (Phone number: 09 793820532). The elephant camps set up for the development of town-based tourism are in short supply. Elephants in forest and mountain camps are not difficult to find feedstuff and water, explained Daw Nine Nine Ayar, a ranger at the Palin Kan Thayar elephant camp. — Ko Htein/GNLM
