Elephants Kannika and Madee were freed from a life in chains and have begun a new life in the Phuket Elephant Sanctuary, southern Thailand.
It’s a sanctuary for elephants who have suffered in captivity, and where they can now live just like in the wild. They can, for example, swim in a large lake.
Need I say that these two were just thrilled to have a swim? Have a look at the video below to witness them having their first swim. It was so beautiful it made my heart sing!
