Aner, his wife Cherry and their 4 Children Ngae Ngae, Glaycee, Glaytu and Whan live onsite at BEES Elephant Sanctuary in Maechaem, Chiang Mai, Thailand. Aner is the head Caretaker at the Sanctuary and is the full-time Caretaker of Mae Kam the first Elephant to retire at BEES Elephant Sanctuary in 2012. The hut that they live in is the first hut the sanctuary built for Caretaker staff in early 2012. The hut is made from Bamboo and wood has gone through a lot of wear and tear. The hut was not designed for a family but more as simple staff accommodation. The family has never once complained and always made it work. Originally Aner had come to work at the sanctuary on his own about 18 months into Mae Kam's retirement, but he missed his wife so much and wanted her and the children to live at the sanctuary after a couple of years of traveling back and fourth on the long journey to Mae Hong Son to see them. When the family first moved in all that time ago Burm and Emily (Founders of BEES) replaced the roofing from grass to tin and bought in materials to make it a bit more comfortable and built a little sheltered area behind the hut where they could hang out.
Wishing you the happiest of birthdays dear Ngae Ngae! I can't wait to visit BEES and see you again one day. I so hope your family have a lovely new home soon! lots of love from Mandy
