There is a special home for old elephants in Burma. The animals are from 41 to 52 years old and they all suffer from problems connected with age.

For example, two elephants have eye problems, one has a heart problem, some of them were attacked by wild elephants in the forest and they have infections.”

The elephants moved in about a year ago with 9 trainers who live in huts in the mountains to stay near the animals.
The owners spend 50 000 dollars a year to run the camp. They want to show animals in their natural environment.

You can watch a video in the Level 3 section.


Interesting words: suffer from (have pain), hut (small simple house).
