Kavaan has safely reached Cambodia on Monday accompanied by US celebrity singer and activist Cher.

Dubbed as the world’s loneliest elephant, Kaavan was the only Asian elephant in Pakistan. Who is not lonely anymore!

36-year-old Kavaan’s new home is going to be a wildlife sanctuary in Cambodia.

The lone elephant’s retirement was made possible after spending 35-years in a zoo at the federal capital as the Islamabad High Court in May this year ruled that the Margazhar Zoo is not fit for animals.

The funds for the relocation of the elephant from Pakistan to Cambodia were raised by Four Paws International, the global animal welfare organization in collaboration with another animals’ rights group, Free the Wild.
