There is a special home for old elephants in Burma. The animals are from 41 to 52 years old. They all have some problems because they are old.

For example, two elephants have problems with their eyes. One elephant has a problem with its heart. Some elephants were attacked by other elephants in the forest and now have infections.”

The elephants came one year ago with 9 trainers. The trainers live in small houses in the mountains. They want to be near the animals.
People pay 50 000 dollars a year for the camp. They want to help the animals.

You can watch a video in the Level 3 section.
