On a day when the surf was flat, LOCAL STYLE‘s Mike Rodger went to the Elephant Safari Park in Bali, Indonesia to play with Sumatran elephants. These pachyderms are one of the most endangered species left in the world today. The Elephant Safari Park is dedicated to elephant conservation, but it’s also where you can get close to touch, feed, ride and play with these rare creatures.
