Her name means fighting spirit! Bounmy Noy grew up in the circus industry where she was used to preform tricks for entertainment. She, and thirteen other elephants, including Joumban and Mae Seang, were rescued by the Laos prime minister from an illegal trade. At the Elephant Conservation Center, she will be forever protected from traders and circus trainers.
She is easily recognized by her floppy ears, deep cheeks, dark brown eyes and LOTS of freckles. Watch the video below of Joumban and Mae Seang, two other elephants rescued in from the same trade.
