Diethelm Travel Group Sponsors Elephant Parade in Bangkok, Thailand

Diethelm Travel Group has become a sponsor of this year's inaugural Elephant Parade in Bangkok, Thailand.

Diethelm's sponsored elephant - An Elephant Dream - was hand painted by talented artists, and is one of eighty eight life-size baby elephant statues which will be displayed in Bangkok from 1 December 2015.

The parade has been created as a fun way to bring attention to the plight of the Asian elephant, and encourage sustainable elephant tourism programmes.

Founded by Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas, the Elephant Parade auctions off the designed statues with proceeds going to support The Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation and a number of other charities designed to help both wild and domesticated elephants throughout Thailand.

"As the only private company from the travel industry participating in the event as main sponsors, we're honoured to support such a great cause and public endeavour," said Hans van den Born, Managing Director of Diethelm Travel Thailand. "Elephant Parade helps create public awareness and a conversation around the treatment of elephants and here at Diethelm we're happy to be a part of the conversation. Elephant tourism activities and practices are an important part of Thailand's tourism industry, yet it's incredibly important that we all make an effort to ensure that they're sustainable."
