- Shows that do not involve torturous training are acceptable: eg. traditional logging and painting.
- Rides do not harm if hours are limited, loads monitored, saddles well-designed and handled by skilled mahouts, and elephants have time in the shade to rest.
- Long chains are preferred to small pens or foaming freely. Chains protect elephants from other elephants of different bloodlines, and farmers whose crops they might otherwise raid. Long chains allow them greater freedom to roam for natural fresh food & water.
- A skilled mahout uses a hook for guidance, not torture. Tourism enables owners to keep talented mahouts on the job. In an elephant's forehead is free of bloody pockmarks, hook is used likely okay.
- Meeting the medical & nutritional needs of captive elephants is costly. Your tourist dollar spent in the right place ensures better practices.
