Volunteering with Globalteer at the Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary provides a unique opportunity to get up close to these gentle giants in the Cambodia Jungle. The project provides a safe, natural home to domestic elephants rescued from various working situations. In the safe haven of the sanctuary the elephants can enjoy a life as close as possible to that of their wild cousins.
Volunteers support the work of the sanctuary by walking the elephants into the forest to forage, observing the elephants in their natural habitat, participating in elephant research and care, conservation of protected jungle and upkeep of the sanctuary.
During the week volunteers stay on site at the sanctuary, in natural style bungalows with the options of shared dorms or a private bungalow. If volunteering more that 1 weeks, weekends are spent in a small nearby town that offers the opportunity to explore the area more.
