Elephant Sanctuary Volunteer in Thailand
Volunteer in Thailand by volunteering with elephants in the Elephant Sanctuary Volunteer in Thailand programme!
This Thailand elephant sanctuary volunteering project located in Thailand, takes in domesticated elephants which were once used to perform to gain profit from the tourist attraction or were used for heavy labour work. This elephant sanctuary provides refuge to these elephants to stop the sufferings which they have long endured and give the elephants a chance to live a normal elephant life. Volunteers are welcomed to the centre to give a hand to provide the elephants their daily needs. Volunteers will get the chance to spend quality time with the elephants and get to know their behavior as well as meeting volunteers from other parts of the world who are passionate about saving these elephants. This is also a great way to get to know Thailand from an animal conservation point of view. If you love working with animals and have a good level of fitness, come and join us!

This experience has been one of the most rewarding, exhilirating and exhausting experiences that I have had in a long time. I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to gain a chance to work with gibbons, macaques, bears and even a sea otter! I wish you all the best of luck and hope in the near future I’ll have the blessed chance to return. This opportunity has opened my eyes and made me much more aware of helping animals as well as giving kudos to those who have ‘rebuilt’ these animals lives for the better.

I can’t believe I’m already leaving, 3 months have gone by so fast. I’m very grateful that I have had the opportunity to come here are work with all these lovely animals for the past three months. It makes me very happy to see that there are still so many people that care about animals and nature and to see that all the animals here are being treated so well. I’m going to miss them all!
Louise Simeon (Belgium) –March 2010
When I first found out about WFFT all the reviews said 2 weeks was not enough here. After my 2 week stay, all I can say as well is 2 weeks is not enough! The staff and volunteers made this a great place to be whilst doing something very worthwhile. I hope the Centre continues to grow and rescue many more animals so they can live happily. Thanks to everyone here, hopefully our paths will cross again!
Gareth Jones (UK) –June 2010
The community, friendship and dedication I’ve encountered here has been truly amazing. I’ve come to love animals I didn’t even know existed before and grown a deeper appreciation for the ones I did. I take home with me only good experiences and memories, even pool scrubs will be thought of fondly, or at least make me laugh!
