for Animals lovers

Eco-volunteering with elephants

Our courses for eco-volunteers are for animal lovers who want to know and share the daily life of elephants and bring them well-being.

During your stay at ELEPHANT CARE THAILAND as a volunteer, we'll show you how to take care of our elephants, and how to give them the love they deserve. It does not take long for you to realize the uniqueness of each of our residents and be touched by their personalities.

Because of the variety of tasks and activities within the refuge, you can discover many facets of the lives of elephants. You will learn the basics to become a mahout, daily tasks and methods to be understood by elephants and share moments with the animals.But you can also bring your knowledge that could help the development of Refuge with the same objective: improving the life of elephants in Thailand and preserve the race.

As a volunteer, all the information useful to your mission will be provided by your head of mission and by all the staff: elephant care, the terms used to listen to you, their nutritional needs ....

You will work with one of the largest and oldest animals in the world.

By learning to take care of them, feed them, play and swim with them, you have the chance to create a unique relationship with each of them and be convinced of the importance of contributing to their survival.

Moreover, you will understand that your financial contribution as a volunteer, directly benefits elephants.

In fact, it costs 1,000 baht per day to feed a single elephant. It must then ensure veterinary care, the camp management (which remains a place of refuge for elephants and offers them a sustainable future), and of course, pay the mahouts who usually spend their entire lives with them.

By engaging in our eco-volunteering internships, you will contribute directly to preventing the extinction of elephants. We are committed to providing you a unique and unforgettable experience
