British classical pianist Paul Barton lives in Thailand where he uses his talent to soothe the gentle giants at the animal sanctuary, Elephant’s World. Since discovering the sanctuary that’s home to over 30 old, sick, and handicapped elephants, Barton has visited the reserve a number of times to perform for the ailing elephants. Introducing the giants to the likes of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven, he has been an immense source of comfort and relief for the animals.

This elephant’s name is Ampan. She is 80 years old and is blind in one eye and can barely see with the other. 80 years is very old indeed for an elephant; it’s about 10 years past the natural life span of an elephant in the wild.
