The project
Home to over 400 animals rescued from neglect and abuse, this inspiring haven needs the help of volunteers to feed, water and enrich the animals, whilst maintaining the environment of the sanctuary.

Rescued from varying conditions of cruelty and neglect, many of the animals brought here cannot be released back to the wild. Volunteers are essential in helping to maintain the sanctuary, giving the wildlife here the greatest chance of a good life.

Animals that call the sanctuary home include, but are not limited to:

  • orangutans
  • elephants
  • sun bears
  • monkeys
  • gibbons
  • macaques
  • otters
  • birds

Volunteers have the amazing opportunity to work closely with these rescued animals, learning more about them and making a genuine contribution towards their survival. This includes food preparation, feeding, cleaning, walking the elephants and harvesting food - amongst other tasks.

Volunteers can either work with a variety of animals at the sanctuary, or just with elephants.

Volunteers live on site, going to sleep to the chattering of the primates and the wind in the trees. The accommodation is basic and comfortable, with 2 - 4 volunteers generally sharing a room with a bathroom. Three meals per day are provided, allowing participants to get to know delicious Thai food, but also have a bit of western food as well.

Volunteers have one day off per week to enjoy all that this corner of Thailand has to offer.
