Work history

Volunteer

Elephant Valley Project

Jul 2015 - Aug 2015
  • The Elephant Valley Project is a sanctuary set up for elephant care, local employment and is an ecotourism site for international and local visitors. Supporting the local community in Mondulkiri, Cambodia resting and recuperating working elephants, I was able to closely observe and gain an understanding of the benefits of this amazing project and assisted in its' growth by carrying out a number of ecotourism projects. This involved working in a close team contributing to community farming, and the building of facilities in order to expand the base camp accommodation.
