In Mondulkiri province an elephant sanctuary was set up a few kilometers outside the provincial capital Sen Monorom. It was started about 5 years ago by Jack Highwood.
You can find them on Facebookhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/70820671560/
We spent a day exploring it and photographing. More about our visit later . In the meantime these websites will tell more about the sanctuaryhttp://www.lonelyplanet.com/cambodia/northeastern-cambodia/sen-monorom/activities/ecotour/elephant-valley-projecthttp://www.globalteer.org/projects/cambodia-elephant-forest-conservation.html
We came to Cambodia this time to visit our friend Bill who worked for WWF in Mondulkiri, to photograph several tourist ventures, and to find out about and record some Cambodian food. As I am writing this, Dorothy is working on the first of series of Cambodian recipes, seehttp://www.foodfromnorthernlaos.com
