This is the second time for the hotel to present the donation to the foundation as a part of the celebration of annual Thailand’s National Elephant Day on March 13th. The hotel also provides game activity and the information board to the guests to help increase the awareness of how significant the elephants are to Thai people.
The amount of money is expected to be spent in the foundation’s activities such as a mobile clinic, health monitoring, and medical treatment.
With a decreasing number of elephants in Thailand, Solitaire Bangkok hopes to raise awareness regarding the issue and support by making donations to save the elephants. “Mr. Lazy Elephant”, proudly resting in the hotel’s lobby, stands as a constant reminder to all visitors coming in and going out regarding the conservation of the beautiful mammal.
