Airavata Elephant Foundation is a nonprofit organisation that aims to protect and conserve the last captive Asian elephants in Ratanakiri Province, Cambodia. The foundation also preserves the cultural traditions of the indigenous mahouts who care for the elephants, and the natural habitat of the Katieng forest where the elephants roam. Airavata Elephant Foundation offers visitors a unique and ethical experience of interacting with the gentle giants in a respectful and responsible way. The foundation also supports various environmental and educational initiatives, such as forest protection, fire breaks, tree nurseries, and volunteer work. Airavata Elephant Foundation is named after the tri-headed elephant, mount of God Indra in the Hindu mythology, and is under the high patronage of King Norodom Sihamoni of Cambodia.
