Samui Elephant Haven provides a sanctuary for rescued elephants on the tropical island of Koh Samui in Southern Thailand. The elephants living at the Haven previously endured harrowing lives providing entertainment for tourist-shows and walking endlessly for trekking. With that life now behind them, these lucky elephants are now free to express their instincts without fear – interacting with each other in beautiful natural surroundings, foraging on native plants in the jungle and playing together in their pools and mud pits.
Heather Anderson –Artist, designer, and writer:Do what you love and you can’t help but bring out the best in yourself. That’s Heather’s mantra and she lives it through all her creative pursuits today. At the age of 17 Heather chose Art School over the more traditionally accepted academic route of the time much to the disappointment of well-meaning career advisors. “You’ll end up being a struggling artist living in an attic,” was the general concern. So she opted for a career in graphic design, the next best thing, and left her true passion tucked away in notebooks and sketchpads under her bed until much later in life. Her journey eventually took her from a tiny village in Scotland to an ever-evolving Asia, where she explored a new world filled with rich cultural nuances and insights. Asia is where those notebooks and sketchpads finally resurfaced and turned into paintings, illustrations, children’s books, jewellery design and a deep desire to use her creative talents to help animals in need. Although Heather still has a full-time job in the Design industry, she spends her spare time in nature, connecting with birds, animals and particularly elephants, creating inspired art and magical stories. Her vision is to use her art and children’s books to educate and encourage positive treatment of elephants and other animals, and to help raise funds to rescue and protect them on an ongoing basis.
