Chiang Mai, Chiang Mai Elephant Journey to Freedom

Chiang Mai Elephant Journey to Freedom

(1 week)
Chiang Mai
For centuries the Karen tribe cared for the elephants in the jungles of south-east Asia. Sadly unemployment within this community resulted in the elephants being hired out to trekking camps and elephant tourist shows, often with dreadful results. Now the time has come for the elephants to return to the village and their natural habitat. Here volunteers have the chance to interact with these beautiful and intelligent animals on a daily basis as well as living and working in this fascinating tribal community in the mountains of Chiang Mai. Volunteers may join this project for one week only - so why not combine a holiday in Thailand with a chance to make a real difference to the lives of the elephants and the community in beautiful Chiang Mai.
