I look forward to how Greater Good Charities can be a part of it all. These primates were being kept as pets in very small cages and no access to natural behavior opportunities. The park has four elephants that have been rescued from the logging industry.
All while getting to know people from around the world. Every 10 seconds or so, Darrick would honk his horn to get the dogs in the middle of the street to get out of our way. We run volunteer programmes in over 30 countries across the world focusing on wildlife conservation and community development projects and every project we offer adheres to our ethical standards. It pains me to think that another living creature can be treated so terribly and abused so much in a lifetime Especially one that is my favourite animal. They do not know they are now safe from abuse and they end up needing constant care and protection once their freedom is bought from places like CWS. All of the dogs are up for adoption worldwide (it costs USD $600 to adopt a dog and this includes flights). Volunteers work alongside local and international staff. Volunteer fees help us to provide vital jobs for the local population, care for their elephants and protect their local forest. The way the elephants are treated was incredible and a beautiful experience to be a part of., We have other projects you may be interested in. There is also the volunteering which can stretch you, physically mainly due to the heat, but not more than you can personally handle. When you come and volunteer, that allows us to do what we do best: to care for sick and abused elephants. Volunteering at the Elephant Conservation Project in Cambodia I found was very rewarding and came away with a real sense of achievement and felt like I'd really made a difference. Help to rehabilitate the elephants and enable them to experience a more natural life. I helped plant fruit and acacia trees all over the property. Amelia Thackray, a student of Cultural and Media Studies and a Lifelong Learning Centre PHE graduate chose to volunteer in Cambodia at a wildlife sanctuary because it combined three of her favourite things: animals, conservation and culture. There are plenty of free time activities to enjoy in town. Greater Good Charities is a registered 501(c)3 public charity. When I arrived at Siem Reap airport after a 22-hour journey, I was met at the gates by a very enthusiastic Australian named Jade, who was to be my team leader for the week. I also slept for 13 hours straight. We walked and looked after the rescue dogs, were introduced to the baby gibbons (so cute!) Not far from the female elephant territory, was 50 acres of land being cleared for a bull elephant enclosure. From the many ancient temples, most notably Angkor Wat, to the awe-inducing Chinese-style architecture and Old French Quarter, there is much to see and do. There are usually 8-10 volunteers with a maximum of 30, but this varies considerably throughout the year. Being so old, she has digestive issues so we prepared a special, soft meal for her daily that included fibre pellets to help her poop. This was a good mix and therefore not too strenuous, with time to relax in the evening.
The Elephant sanctuary is located in the Mondulkiri region that is in the remote Eastern part of Cambodia. These animals, generally elephants and primates, are starved and tortured to render them submissive and pliable.
The Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary is financed through the volunteer program and private donations. Donations made through volunteering really helps wildlife sanctuaries and I cant wait to go back and participate again. The bungalows are basic, but comfortably furnished with a double bed, tables and a chair and have ensuite bathrooms. The project is unique and looks after domestic, semi wild and wild animals who live on the reserve (such as a wild white female gibbon who visits a rescued male hopefully these will mate). There are also suggestions for ways you can get involved to have a positive impact too. I assumed he was talking about the local Cambodian women who come to the Sanctuary to work for the day. This area is being cleared for the future bull elephant enclosure at Cambodia Wildlife Sanctuary. I take comfort in knowing that the land is theirs, and they are free to come and go as they please. This treatment involves beatings and torture to subdue them, separating and isolating them from one another and overworking them to exhaustion. I then went wild swimming in a stunning waterfall. The Asian country boasts beautiful beaches, a sea filled with unique, hill-like islands, and many ancient, ornate temples. Volunteer in Cambodia at a sanctuary that allows elephants to live freely in a natural habitat! Elephant Conservation Volunteer Project, Sri Lanka, Bear Sanctuary Volunteer Project, Cambodia, Observe elephants in their natural habitat, Assist with the daily work of an Elephant sanctuary.
