Taro, Bali, Indonesia. Asian Captive Elephant Standards (ACES) have awarded Mason
Adventures Elephant Park with Gold level accreditation. Mason Adventures has exceeded
elephant camp standards and fulfilled over 90% of ACES strict advanced camp criteria. They
have reached the highest level of accreditation possible for an elephant camp.
Mason Adventures are the first elephant camp to be awarded accreditation by ACES and
comes after an intensive assessment and auditing process. Director of ACES Mr Nicolas
Dubrocard says “Mason Adventures is an exceptional example of elephant-based tourism.
elephants are well socialised, provided with strong enrichment opportunities and receive the
best veterinary available. We are proud of all the hard work the team at Mason Adventures
have invested into their camp and elephants. The Gold level is very much deserved”.
Mr.Dubrocard will travel to Bali on 20 November 2019 for a press conference and handover
ceremony with Mason Adventures to award them with their camp validation.
ACES assess elephant camps throughout southeast Asia to provide the highest level of
elephant welfare for all elephants working in the tourism industry. Elephant camps must
meet all 119 mandatory criteria to pass, and complete further standards for higher
validation. ACES scrutinises all areas of camp management including elephant shelters, diet,
veterinary care, socialisation, feeding, riding, physical and mental enrichment, staff training
and entitlements and many other facets of camp care. For further information contact ACES
