1. Are there any age or physical requirements?
The minimum age requirement for volunteers is 18. The demands of the placement require a degree of fitness and mobility for those volunteers wishing to work in the field with the elephants and contribute to their daily care. However, we can accommodate volunteers with physical impediments who are capable of assisting us in the office. Please note that we do not have wheelchair facilities.
2. How long can I volunteer for?
The duration of our Everything Elephant programme is one week.
Due to the nature of our Walking with Giants programme, the minimum volunteer placement time is three weeks and we recommend at least four weeks for volunteers who want to become fully involved with our research. There is no maximum length of stay…you are welcome to join us for as long as you want!
