    Scenes of hungry, unemployed elephants wandering the crowded streets of Bangkok begging for food and money from tourists and urbanites may soon be a memory after the Thai capital’s municipal government—the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, (the BMA or City Hall)—recently kicked off strict new measures to ban the elephants from the streets and enlist help from the Provincial Administrative Organisation in the northeastern province of Surin, home to large numbers of both pachyderms and their handlers, the mahouts, in an attempt to find a lasting and sustainable solution to the problem.

    Following City Hall’s Elephant Smile Project, the Returning Elephant to its Homeland project was launched to help shelter wandering elephants in the capital. Over 7,000 rai of land (some 2,800 acres) at the Elephant Studies Centre in Surin’s Tha Tum district, is now home to wandering elephants after the centre received a government budget of 22 million baht (US$660,000).
