It's back! Don't miss this on Channel 5 on Tuesday 14 June 2022.
The programme is called Elephant Hospital and it's the world's largest elephant hospital nestled in the forests of Thailand in Lampang. It's open 24/7 and is a sort of NHS for elephants. The team of highly skilled and very dedicated staff never know what sort of problems the elephants will be arriving with but they all do their very best to help them.
Paul O'Donoghue and Katheirne Connor head back to the hospital for this new series (four parts). It cares for over 100 sick, injured or neglected animals every year. And if the elephants can't come to the hospital, the vets go to the elephants!
This is a heart-warming series with uplifting and unexpected stories, be they treating an elephant with cancer or a baby elephant being fed with a giant milk bottle! There's an elephant with severe diarrhoea, and a male elephant who has been attacked by another bull elephant. It's all go, as the incredible team try to help each elephant as best they can.
I am looking for ways to donate to this hospital - watch this space
It's supported by Friends of the Asian Elephant and here is their Facebook page.
THANK YOU to everyone at the hospital for all you do for these wonderful elephants.
