Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) in Cambodia

Apr 24, 2017 | 0 comments

In keeping with some recent coverage of GTAEF activities outside of the Golden Triangle where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar come together, we will now describe a very interesting program GTAEF supports in former war-torn Cambodia. For many years, the world turned a blind eye to the human atrocities of the Khmer Rouge as they destroyed their fellow Cambodians as well as their environment. Accordingly, it is time to look at the humane side of the survivors as they focus on saving their remaining forests and wildlife. For over three years, the GTAEF has assisted the Ministry of Environment of Cambodia...

The Mandarin from the Middle Kingdom Meets Trump at Mar-a-Lago

Apr 17, 2017 | 0 comments

President Xi Jinping of China has met with President Donald Trump and, as the world remains in orbit, we can call the first face-to-face meeting of the two most powerful, contentious world leaders a success. As you may have gathered from a series of recent blogs about China, the author has no particular fondness for the place or most of its people. Until mid-March, a state entity of China had a long outstanding indebtedness of $52,700,351 to the company that provides the author's day job income which in turn covers the many bills of the author's passion, The Elephant Story....

Arrogance in the Middle Kingdom

Apr 10, 2017 | 0 comments

If you have read any of the recent blogs about the Middle Kingdom, a.k.a., China, you will have noted a common thread and that is the arrogance of "Mainland Chinese" despite how desperate their conditions or situations may be. The author's most extreme realization of that characteristic happened many years ago in a very primitive medical facility in a small Chinese village. One must first recognize a small village in China is anything below the one million population level. One morning, the author went for a jog in Ulaan Baatar, Mongolia, slipped in the rain and suffered a severe abrasion....

Elephant Conflict Mitigation in Sumatra

Apr 03, 2017 | 0 comments

The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation (GTAEF) is known for elephant conservation projects in the Golden Triangle where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar join. However, they support a number of projects outside of the Golden Triangle which we will cover in the future. Although we have touched on their efforts outside of the Golden Triangle in Elephant Vet Without Borders on November 11, 2016 (set in the Mengyang Nature Reserve China), there are others in wild elephant habitats more further afield. GTAEF and co-sponsor, Asian Elephant Support, have an interesting elephant conservation program as well under the direction of Dr. Christopher...

The Dalai Lama

Mar 27, 2017 | 0 comments

If anyone was asked who was the most famous Buddhist in the world, most would say The Dalai Lama.  In actual fact, he is the 14th Dalai Lama whose religious name is Tenzin Gyatso.  He was born in 1935 in a small Tibetan village and was designated as the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama in 1937 and enthroned as the 14th Dalai Lama in 1950.  Although he is recognized as one of the leading figures in the world, he continues to represent a thorn in the side of China since he fled Tibet to India in 1959.   The communist...
