Elephants World in Thailand is dedicated to conserving and protecting domestic elephants whilst educating visitors. Due to the rapid decrease in elephant population the people of Elephants World hope to give them the care and protection they need without keeping them trapped in claustrophobic captivity.
Paul Barton has made a series of videos where he plays classical pieces on a grand piano for the elephants. Their response is incredible as you can see the emotional response elicited by the sounds, some even begin to shed tears at the sound of the music. Watch some of the incredible videos below.
