Awesome Elephants!

10/10

Amazing project in Thailand, the elephants are able to live wonderful lives at the sanctuary. The elephants come from difficult backgrounds but live a great, stress free life at this project. The volunteer work is great and you know you are making a difference by supporting this project. There are lots of volunteers helping the elephants and I got to meet wonderful people from all around the world.

The project is in the jungle and has lots of elephants. The elephants are rescued from bad lives and now live at the sanctuary. i was really impressed with the what they do with the elies, they have so much space to roam and forage. the projects really has the elies best interests at heart. there is no riding the elephants like at other places, in fact, some of the elies are rescued from elephnats trekking camps!

Borneo Volunteer

10/10

Probably the most beautiful place I have been! The small island was just like out of a TV advert, you could litterally walk around it in 30 minutes. The team there was great and I had such a great time. The work was fun and you really do see the results of your work. We planted so many new coral reefs and you can see all the old reefs the project has planted and all the marine life that has returned.

I love Elephants!

10/10

The elephant project is just amazing! I love elephants and just spending time with them and being able to care for them and improve their lives was just the best experience I have ever had.

The elephants come from such a tragic background. The project rescues them and basically let's them be elephants again. The are retired from a life of abuse and hard work.

I will definitely be back, the project is making a real difference to the elephants lives and also to the volunteers who are lucky enough to care for them.

Peru Dog Rescue Project

10/10

The first thing I should comment on is the passion that the staff at the shelter have for what they are doing. They put their heart and souls into helping as many dogs as they can, and they genuinely care about the well-being of each and every one of the animals under their care. And taking care of so many pups is a lot of work, so they are so appreciative to all of the volunteers that come to help! Of course the dogs are always happy to see you when you enter the shelter, and how can so many wagging tails not put a smile on your face?! While working, even if it's the grubby stuff like washing bowls or cleaning up messes, you genuinely feel like you are helping these animals have a better life, one meal or one scratch behind the ear at a time. Especially seeing how many dogs are out on the streets in Cusco - homeless, injured, or just generally unhealthy and un-cared for - you know that each of the dogs at the shelter have such a better quality of life, and are genuinely loved! It's a wonderful thing to be a part of.

Life Changing Experience

10/10

The Thailand Wildlife Sanctuary was just amazing!
There are so many animals there being helped and cared for by the project. There was always work to be done if volunteers wanted and even on downtime it was just great to wander around the sanctuary and be with the animals.

Meeting all the other volunteers was also amazing. I made some great friends who share my passion for animals.

I will always remember the call of the gibbons in the morning, nothing better to wake up to!

How can this program be improved?

There is nothing that can make this important project better, they just need as much help as possible to care for the amazing animals.
