What do you call an elephant that doesn’t matter? An irrelephant! All jokes aside, each and every one of our elephants matter to us and our volunteers. Here’s what we’ve been up to this week.
Most of the volunteers who were on our elephant conservation program last week had finished their volunteering and had already headed home – but not everyone. There were two lovely volunteers, Katherine and Shae, who carried on volunteering and were lucky enough to have the elephant village all to themselves.
Joined by our two charming guides – Worn and Aow – the volunteers set about doing all the work at the elephant village on their own. They both worked very hard to ensure that the elephants were well taken care of and they had the time if their lives doing so.
Shae said that she actually enjoyed the extra work and that working for the elephants was both fun and worthwhile. She also mentioned that she would be coming back again in the near future, only this time she would choose to stay even longer!
We’d like to just say a quick ‘thank you’ to all of the volunteers who have been a part of our elephant program in Surin, we would love to welcome you all back to Thailand soon.
