Miến Điện mở trại dưỡng lão cho voi

Lời thoại chương trình - Script

They’re not the healthiest specimens of the ten thousand that live in Burma.

But thanks to the opening of this elephant retirement home, these animals do at least have a safe refuge.

The owners have brought in these healthy elephants to boost funding for food and medicine through tourism.

They say visitors should see them in their natural habitat and not as creatures of entertainment.
