Volunteer Testimonials

“I always felt well taken care of and knew that if I needed anything or had any questions, I could always contact a member of AERU. Everyone is so helpful and friendly. This has also been a major contributing factor to feeling so comfortable at AERU. Ellies playing in the waterhole and the pleasant silence and starry sky during the evening observation were some of my most memorable moments – it´s a very special experience.

My contributions to the research unit with the monitoring the elephants and data entry and with the nursery project was very enriching. I have taken some valuable lessons with me now that I can apply in my life and it has shown me once again that I can also quickly initiate new ways with small steps. A huge thank you to everyone, that everyone contributed to make the time so great, I will remember it with so much joy for a very, very long time.”

my experiences in the field with the elephants and guides have been excellent. Watching the ten ellies interact with their environment, each other, and operate in their own manners has given me such valuable insight that a textbook could not.
