From grassroots and the help of a few long-term volunteers, we have grown a small idea into an amazing initiative. Without the incredible help of volunteers, we would not be where we are today. This project provides vital jobs for the local population, community assistance and vet care for elephants. We want to open our doors for volunteers from many different backgrounds and walks of life to join us and contribute in their own unique ways! Mondulkiri is being rapidly deforested and the project also protects an area of “elephant forest” for the local population and the creatures that inhabit the area. Volunteers will have an amazing ethical and responsible elephant experience and can observe the elephants roaming in a semi-wild habitat while engaging in elephant health checks, research and other projects. A fun and enjoyable experience where volunteers will meet people from all over the world and gain some meaningful hands-on experience volunteering at the sanctuary.
Volunteers to the project are expected to contribute to a variety of projects which in the past have included digging trenches, building water towers, bridges, pathways, construction, working on the banana, bamboo and pineapple farms, etc. Needless to say, there is always something going on.
Volunteers must be open-minded and proactive to see where they can help.
Flexibility to participate in many different tasks.
Health and physical capability to do manual work.
Creativity and initiative to work in an environment with limited resources.
Mondulkiri is the easternmost province of Cambodia and also the most sparsely populated province in the whole country. it is well known for its natural beauty, with thickly forested mountain, powerful waterfalls, and lush green rolling hill. one of the highlights is trekking and bathing elephants.
