BEWARE - We will reference landmines in this program. As such, your learner may inquire further about this issue. If you prefer to avoid this topic with your child then you may want to skip this program. Why address it? Some of the elephants that your learner will see were injured by landmines and there is no way around the topic. This is a reality in this part of the world. Additionally, we will talk about the mistreatment of elephants in this program. Why? Again, this is a reality with elephant tourism and we can not avoid the conversation. As an organization, we approach these conversations respectfully and truthfully. We can not help these magnificent animals if we are intentionally or unintentionally hurting them.
