Hello thankyou for having a look and seeing what I'm going to be getting involved in!
I'm embarking on an exciting adventure to Thailand in Jan 2015 through a company called Edventure to help with the conservation of elephants and getting involved in building better local communities!
What I'll be doing!
Due to habitat loss and poaching, elephants are endangered in this region of Eastern Thailand, and being in love with elephants myself, I knew I had to get involved with the protection of these beautiful animals. I will be helping with the construction of elephant shelters, planting and harvesting food, walking and bathing them as well as basic healthcare.
I will also help with the local community and schools to develope a sustainable standard of living as many local communities don't have access to provide a good quality of life. This will involve teaching at local schools as well as painting classrooms to provide a better educational environment, helping with projects like building greenhouses, mushroom houses and hydroponic plant systems, as well as helping with village infrustructure.
How you can help!
Apart from food and accomodation for myself, the money you will help me raise goes to the local communities for building supplies and tools, plants and hiring local Thai workers.
This is going to be an amazing learning journey and experience for me! We are so fortunate to live the lives we have and with your help we can help improve the quality of life for these elephants and beautiful people.
