Description:

Currently, the conflict between elephants and humans is rising, because there's less and less areas for the elephants to live in. People are cutting the forest, both legally and illegally, to plant palm trees for oil, and this has significant influence on the life of the elephants. The local government and local organizations, concerned about the wildlife, are working together to save the elephants.

The volunteers will learn about the life of elephants, how local people take care of them and what they do for their conservation.
The volunteers will help local mahouts daily to take care of the elephants, starting from bathing/showering, feeding, health checking and grassing the elephants. One local mahout will be accompanied by two volunteers in doing the daily job.

During the free time, the volunteers may have a forest safari with a local mahout with a camp fire, fishing, as well as swimming in the middle of the forest. The volunteers can enjoy the beauty of the landscape around the project site.

Project dates:
July 20 - July 28, 2020
November 2 - November 10, 2020
January 11 - January 19, 2021
