Pang Fai may have been a neighbor of “Boon Lott’s Elephant Sanctuary” for more than 30 years but she is just now beginning (since May 2018) to enjoy the life of being an elephant, as every elephant should. For this elephant endured the life of a logging elephant for far too many years until her owner approached BLES founder, Katherine Connor, at BLES about retiring the pachyderm. Thankfully after a fundraising effort Pang Fai now calls BLES her home and has been their “ray of sunshine” ever since.

Pang Fai is a movie star, having been featured in the Animal Planet Series Dodo Heroes! Learn more about how to watch the show at “Katherine’s Elephant Eden” Season 1 Episode 5  

(This episode originally aired on Animal Planet on 07 July 2018.)
