Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand - Feeding June the elephant
Thailand
On the early morning of the 15th of April 2013, 75 year old elephant June passed away at the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand. June spend almost 3 years at WFFT after she was abandoned to die in the Surin elephant project village in 2010. Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand gave this old woman 3 years of freedom, care and love after a life of slavery in the Thai tourist industry where she got hit with metal hooks on a daily basis. At the Wildlife Rescue Center she met Bua Ngun, another female elephant and they became close friends. After the death of Bua Ngun last week, June decided that this was the end of her life aswell and died in the forrest around the Wildlife Rescue Center after leaving her paddock. This panorama is an honor to the Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand, to all the fantastic work that they do and of course to June herself. This picture shows June, somewhere in the last weeks of her life while she was being fed by one of the volunteers.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
