Caretaker Serenades Elephant to Sleep With Traditional Lullaby
According to this elephant caretaker, all it takes is a little love to be able to communicate with the peaceful giants.
Sangduen "Lek" Chailert, founder of the Save Elephant Foundation in Thailand, said her love for elephants first began when her father was given a baby elephant as payment for saving a man's life.
"We communicate," Lek said in an interview with Save Elephant Foundation of her bond with elephants. "They feel that I am the one that loves them, and trusts them."
Faa Mai can be seen in the video by Elephant Nature Park using her trunk to wrap Lek into an elephant-sized hug before lying down, and getting ready for her nap. Lek even presses their foreheads together to help Faa Mai fall asleep.
"I feel very peaceful," she said about being with the elephants, "it's the best medication."
