Sustaining Thailand's Treasures
Volunteer with us and see how to help preserve the native elephant habitat in Thailand! On a volunteer vacation, one can be the hope for the endangered elephants, changing their fate by creating ways for the people of the Surin Province to advocate for sustainable elephant eco-tourism.
This volunteer program involves work with the locals to preserve the elephant habitat and includes projects such as planting food crops like bamboo and native grasses. The volunteers have built enclosures, sun shelters for the elephants, composts from elephant dung and cut and made elephant food. In this area where not much grows, it is a daily job for the mahouts to find food for the elephants. Volunteers will be able to feed the elephant’s fruit, sugarcane and grass which they would have freshly cut. And have the opportunity to bathe the elephants and go for long along the river.
