The Governor of Sayaboury province, Phongsavanh Sitthavong, selected the Elephant Conservation Center (ECC) to reaffirm his commitment to the conservation of elephants in Laos.

On October 5th, 2017, the Governor of Sayaboury Province, accompanied by the Ambassador of Japan, Takeshi Hikihara, and the Sayaboury District Chief, visited the only real elephant conservation center in Laos.

The Governor emphasized the need to protect captive elephants in their natural habitat, as the forests of the Sayaboury region shelter 75% of the elephant population of Laos. Our guests were privileged to discover the new facilities at the only elephant hospital in Laos.
