Mosha, an Asian elephant lost her right leg after stepping on a landmine at 7 months old. Close to death, she was rescued and brought to the Friends of the Asian Elephant hospital in Lampang, Thailand, where she became the first elephant in the world to be fitted with a prosthetic leg in 2007. Pictured here in 2009, she was fit with a new leg to keep up with her rapid growth. Her home in the tropical jungle of northern Thailand, near the Cambodian border, is an orphanage for elephants. The gentle giants are the new symbol of the fight against the banned weapons. Thousands of Thais have been injured and killed due to landmines, with a recent survey estimating there are about 100 new mine casualties each year.
