You will assist at a local Sanctuary providing a safe refuge for rescued elephants. These elephants have been saved from both hunting programmes and illegal circus activities.
There are currently 5 elephants residing at the Sanctuary – Marula, Jabu, Thandi, Thumelo & Thaba.
You will assist with cleaning the elephants’ night stables and outdoor areas; along with helping with the general upkeep of the sanctuary.
You will also assist with on-going observations of the elephants which will contribute to a long-term study of elephant behaviour.
Volunteers spending at least 4 weeks on the program will also have the opportunity to visit Addo Elephant National Park and contribute to ongoing research of these wild elephants.
