Lek Chailert has received multiple honors and recognition for her fight for the rights and welfare of Asian elephants. Several documentaries have been produced by National Geographic, Discovery, Animal Planet and the BBC. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton invited Lek to Washington DC in 2010, to honor her as one of six Women Heroes of Global Conservation. Lek was named one of Time Magazine’s Heroes of Asia for her work in conservation in 2005, and the Ford Foundation’s “Hero of the Planet” in 2001. The National Geographic documentary "Vanishing Giants," highlighting Lek’s work with the Asian elephant, was recognized by the Humane Society of the United States with the Genesis Award in 2003.
