Your support means he’ll enjoy a life worth living, even if he cannot return to the wild.

Gift him a bucket of watermelons! 

Who doesn’t love some juicy watermelon on a hot day?! Chhouk definitely does! You’ll make him very happy and get an e-certificate to say thank you. It makes a great birthday gift for that person who has everything already.

Chhouk’s story as a beautiful children’s book

Incredible author, Laurel Neme and illustrator, Ariel Landy collaborated with Nick Marx to adapt Chhouk’s heart pulling story into a book for children. Published by Scholastic, it captures the hearts of young readers and their parents. 

‘This touching TRUE story of triumph and compassion will appeal to any child who loves animals (especially elephants). It’s written in such accessible, vivid, careful language. Even kids with the tenderest hearts will be able to handle the story. They’ll feel moments of sadness and fear for the sweet little elephant, but the joy of watching him overcome his challenges more than makeup for it. In short, this story is very well told, with plenty of elephant facts for curious kids, and it’s gorgeously illustrated.’ – Amazon Reviewer

Made it this far through? Thank you so much! Although the ongoing care of Chhouk is just part of caring for all of the animals at Phnom Tamao, he is a brilliant ambassador for the fight against snaring in Cambodia. His story connects people in the country and worldwide with the scale of the snare crisis. Spread the word, and hopefully we can make a change!
