To break the monotony of online classroom learning for children in lockdown Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort has introduced a cool and interactive live virtual school trip starring rescued elephants.Children of all ages, from across the world can learn about these gentle giants with the help of the resort's resident vet introducing each elephant and answering any questions that young inquisitive minds may have.

During the livestream, children are introduced to their three-ton video call companions and have ample time to ask questions about the pachyderms to the Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation’s (GTAEF) elephant experts. Then, championing the natural joy of the herd of elephants’ daily free-roaming time, accompanied by the mahouts and either a veterinarian or biologist, the livestream offers insights from scientific experts about how these intelligent creatures think and behave. Walking out to the forest unveils river and wild nature scenery and, falling in pace with the slow, steady rhythm, the children can observe the elephants’ social interaction in their native habitat. Each virtual field trip is customized to meet the needs and curriculum of the students.   
 
 
The GTAEF can coordinate complimentary virtual field trips with elephants for online school classes that take place during Thailand daylight hours.
