YOU WANT TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER FOR ELEPHANT HAVEN?

There are still fenceposts to be erected, plus all sorts of other chores.

Although facilities on the ground are still basic, as a volunteer, you will be able to make a much appreciated and important contribution to this project.

INFO FOR VOLUNTEERS OF ELEPHANT HAVEN

More and more, people are offering their help as volunteers. We are extremely grateful as Elephant Haven can only be maintained with your support.

Good to know:

-If you are able to stay for a longer period, please let us know. We can organise a trial period so that you can get to know us and we can get to know you.

-Currently, we invite you to organise your own meals and overnight stay. We are not able to provide board and lodging yet. Unfortunately we can't accommodate campervans.

-We can give you information about good and cheap lodging near Elephant Haven.

-There is no wifi.

-Here are the chores we need help with:

Pruning, weeding, getting rid of brambles, general maintenance, sawing wood, gathering wood, continuing the outer perimeter fence (debarking & painting poles, digging holes, fixing poles into the ground, attaching mesh wire), removing the roof of the existing stable, cleaning the stable, sorting out tools and equipment, tending the vegetable garden, moving trees, picking fruit (depending on the season, of course), coming up with ways of collecting funds.

In general this means hard and dirty work.

-We will have to ask you to sign a document on arrival in which you state that your volunteering is at your own risk.

-Please note that for now we are not able to employ paid staff, like animal keepers for instance. There is still too much work to be done in establishing the place.
