ELEPHANT CONSERVATION PROJECTS

VOLUNTEER IN AFRICA AND EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH ELEPHANTS

The African elephant is the world’s largest land animal. Weighing in at 6 tonnes, these giant creatures are pretty adept at handling themselves. Yet, despite their large stature and commanding physical presence, African elephants are classified as vulnerable.

Even with the international ban on the trade of ivory in place, the biggest threat to the African elephant is ivory poaching. Combined with the human population expanding and taking up more land, in addition to human conflicts, elephants have to face danger in numerous forms.

If you feel strongly about helping to protect vulnerable elephants, the good news is that you’re not alone. Our projects are bringing caring, enthusiastic people together to volunteer with elephants. You can help to research, monitor and protect these majestic animals. From monitoring elephants across a huge 360,000 hectare concession in the Okavango Delta region where you’ll learn how to use transects and camera traps to assist with elephant studies, to managing elephant populations in a Big 5 safari reserve, you can make a difference, help to save the elephants, protect their status and be a part of something special.
