The NameIn the 80s, a baby elephant was chained up and left to her fate. Shackled. No escape. Her future was gloomy. Like a sky filled with dark clouds. Until the same man, the owner of the garden, rescued the elephant baby.
And so she was given the name - which the newest baby elephant was also given following her rescue - of "Clear blue sky" - Fahjem.
Species ProtectionFahjem is an Asian elephant and therefore belongs to a species that is threatened with extinction. The botanical garden with an elephant reserve is dedicated to protecting Asian elephants and ensuring their preservation. On average, 12 elephant babies are born every year in the Nongnooch Garden Pattaya.
