Elephant Sanctuary & Forest Conservation Volunteer Opportunity
The volunteers at this project will help to: care for sick and abused elephants, protect the forests and provide vital jobs, healthcare, community assistance and vet care for the local indigenous population and elephant owners across Cambodia.
Most of the volunteer work is done at a distance to allow the elephants to roam free in their natural habitat and have as stress free lifestyle as possible, with the chance for volunteers to observe these elephants in their forest home.
Key tasks of the volunteer will be, among others:
- Observing elephant behavior in their natural habitat;
- Taking part in research programs on elephants and forest;
- Reforestation work in the community forest as well as the larger protected forest;
- Planting and maintaining food farms like banana and bamboo for the elephants.
