Elephant riding is a popular tourist experience in Thailand.
But it leads to immense suffering for the elephants involved.
The elephants spend hours every day carrying their handler, tourists, and a heavy seat on their backs.
After years of enduring these rides, their backs become sunken and deformed.
On top of this, they also endure other abuses by their handlers.
Please sign this petition to urge Thailand to end elephant riding once and for all!
