Volunteering Projects in Thailand in Elephant Conservation, Childcare and Community Development

“Sa-wat-dee” Hello and welcome to Thailand! Turquoise seas and palm-fringed island beaches in the South, jungle-cloaked mountains and tranquil river villages in the north and everything from golden Buddhist temples to booming Bangkok nightclubs in between!

In Thailand you can assist with excellent conservation efforts with elephants in two different locations, or you can help the local community by teaching English and other subjects to children in Singburi. This is an excellent country to expand your cultural knowledge of South East Asia.

Please see our list of brief descriptions below, then click on the link to read all about the project. CAN'T CHOOSE? Call our Thailand Project Consultant, Karen Herring, for free advice on which Project would be best for you. +44 (0)1903 502595

Care for Rescued Elephants in an Elephant Sanctuary in Kanchanaburi
This is a fantastic opportunity to work with rescued elephants in the stunning location of Kanchanaburi. The elephants are mainly injured, sick and elderly elephants which have been relocated to the Sanctuary where they are cared for and given a better quality of life, you’ll work hands-on with them, including swimming and taking mud baths with them, mucking out their enclosures and, most satisfying of all, ensuring they live in a happy, comfortable environment!
