“The asian culture is very complex: on the one hand people worship elephants in religion, as Ganesh, the Goth with elephant head; but on the other hand, people don´t care about elephants, do the contrary, they abuse them. As long as we were going deeper into the asian culture, we understood  than the conflict was very complex, for example, there are not laws for protect these animal, because this problem happen in the poorest countries of the world, and the government has other concerns”.

“Our goal was to inform and denounce an unknown critical situation; every year millions of tourist visit Asia, pay for ride elephants, and they cannot imagine what a terrible abuse they are contributing. If we all get inform, we will change our behavior choosing other kind of tourist attractions, and the elephants shows or rides will stop to be profitables, becoming to a responsible tourist, respecting animals and preserving them to the future”.
