In the northeastern village of Ban Ta Klang in Thailand, Siriporn Sapmak starts her day by doing a livestream of her two elephants on social media to raise money to survive.
The 23-year old, who has been taking care of elephants since she was in school, points her phone to the animals as she feeds them bananas and they walk around the back of her family home.
He expected more elephants to be born in captivity over the next year, exacerbating the pressures on their owners.
“Some days we make some money, some days none, meaning there's going to be less food on the table,” said Pensri.
“I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel.”
