Ayeya May is an orphaned baby elephant in Winga Baw Elephant Camp, Myanmar. She’s not the only elephant in the camp, in fact, two others are also living here. 7-month-old Yuyu and 4-month-old Mary also live at the camp.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; there’s nothing cuter than a baby elephant! We just love them, they’re such emotional and beautiful creatures.
Ayeya May the baby elephant requires direct care at this time as she is separated from her mother. What she craves is motherly companionship; she needs to feel cared for.
Thankfully, Lek Chailert, the founder of the Save Elephant Foundation and Elephant Nature Park, visits the camp.
Ayeya May loves bonding with her caring human mom
After Lek Chailert has fed Ayeya May her milk, she likes to make the baby elephant feel comfortable. Giving this gentle giant the best care is Leik Chailert’s number one priority.
To calm this gorgeous creature, Lek Chailert sings lullabies to her while she strokes her head to nurse her to sleep. Hearing her sing to the elephant is like how a mother would sing to her newborn baby. It truly is a special bond these two have.
You can see why Ayeya May feels so comfortable around this loving human – their bond is too pure. It’s just so special to see this creature be treated with the dignity and respect that it deserves.
Nobody wants to see the elephant locked away in a small cage or performing in the circus. We want them to be safe and free.
Don’t forget to watch Lek Chailert sing a lullaby to Ayeya May the elephant in the video below. Also, at Happiest we love hearing all of your opinions. So please let us know what you thought of the article in the comment section. 🐝
