Elephant Adele has been part of LW tribe since they met for a photo shoot in Bali a few years ago. They were stunned by the intimacy between her and her caretaker, who often sleeps by her side.
Humans have not always been so kind to her. Adele was earlier one of many elephants brutally used in the Asian tourist industry. Captured as an adolescent, she was put at hard work carrying tourists around. Her luck turned, however, when she was rescued by a non-profit association and moved to a rescue centre where she will live happily ever after.
