Volunteer with elephants – Thailand
How do I take part?
Do you relish new experiences and love elephants? Come and spend 9 days in Thailand observing elephants at a pioneering ethical sanctuary.
Early-bird offer: we're offering a reduced-price registration fee of £300 for early registrations. Just quote VWE50 when you speak to us about registration!
Taking part in this event will no doubt rank in your best ever life experiences. You will be seeing something truly amazing: rescued elephants living safely at last.
Chang Chill is a ground-breaking development for both elephants and tourists. It is a very real example of a sanctuary where tourists can see elephants behaving naturally and freely as part of a herd. It demonstrates that elephant-friendly experiences are possible, without forcing cruel interactions with people.
The funds you raise by taking part in volunteer with elephants will go to help wildlife all over the world.
