Chiang Mai, Thailand
Fantastic opportunity for a life-enhancing experience spending time volunteering at this Elephant Sanctuary which is a rescue and rehabilitation centre in Northern Thailand. Volunteers work hands-on helping with the daily tasks looking after the thriving elephant herd, many of whom have been rescued from desperate situations. The sanctuary provides a very natural environment for the elephants, many of whom are disabled, blind and orphaned and who have been abused as working animals and for street begging. Care is also provided for dogs, cats, buffalo and many other animals who have been rescued and need care.
