Dayne Davey

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.

This project is part of our Practical Conservation & Elephant Experience Program.
