Elephant Village Life in Thailand
Our Elephant Village program is based in a rural and traditional Thai farming village. Since elephants are not longer used in the logging industry, the Mahouts (elephant guardians), often earn less than $5 per family per week and struggle to properly care for the elephants. Without the help of volunteers like you, the Mahouts are forced to take the elephants to beg on the streets which is very dangerous.
Jungle Conservation in Peru
Do you crave the wild places? Are you passionate about conservation? With two Amazon locations available, volunteers may assist in orchid planting, bamboo removal, research projects, teaching at the local school, helping maintain trails and creating an inventory of species. A wide variety of ongoing projects means that there is always something interesting going on. Please note that Jungle volunteers will not be able to take part in Spanish lessons during their time in the jungle. However, we can arrange for Spanish lessons before or after your project, though this may include additional costs for housing.
