EHRA needs volunteers every 2 weeks of the year to help with our hands on, grass roots elephant conservation project.
In November 2012 EHRA won 'Best Volunteering Project' at Virgin Holiday's Repsonsible Tourism Awards, a great achievement for the team and testiment to the high standards in which we run the project.
Volunteer teams build huge protection walls by hand around community water points which elephants often damage, during the week long build week. On the second week the team head out into the desert with our trackers to GPS elephant movements and build identification files on all elephants in the area. This week is incredibly special as you get up close and personal with the elephants and learn about their facinating, inspiring society.
The project is back to basics, you work hard in the days, cook and sit around an open fire in the evenings and sleep right under the stars!
Volunteers come from all over the world, are all ages and from all types of career backgrounds. The project is well established and has been in operation for the past 9 years with over 850 people volunteering for EHRA.
The project is a brilliant escape for professionals who need a break and want to find some simplicity in life!
Sound good? Then join the team and experience a stress free, fun and rewarding 2-12 weeks with EHRA!
