Kindred Spirit Elephant Sanctuary

About

We are a non-profit Foundation registered in Thailand who aim to return as many elephants as possible back into their natural environment by rescuing them from tourism. We work with our wonderful hill-tribe community to create an alternative which will not only benefit their elephants, but will also benefit them. We work to educate our community by teaching English & having them work on a sustainable tourism project which we hope will help to combat the illegal trade.

Unforgettable!

I volunteered for Kindred Spirit for 1 month in June 2016. It was an amazing experience. Seeing elephants in their natural habitat roaming, foraging and socializing was unforgettable. The staff on the project are very knowledgeable about elephants, conservation and the captive elephant situation in Thailand. Of course the elephants were the highlight, but immersing myself in another culture was truly amazing. My homestay family along with the mahouts and other villagers were so welcoming, opening their homes and showing me their way of life. I had the time of my life, an experience I will never forget!

What would you improve about this program?
The staff mentioned adding bamboo rafting as a weekend add-on activity which I think is a great idea!
