Elephant Nature Park

Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar

Work with baby elephants, veterinarians & elephant trainers when volunteering in the veterinary student/assistant program at the Elephant Nature Park.

The park also offers programs for non-medically trained volunteers; cut corn, make fresh salads, take the elephants on walks and even give them a bath!

The Elephant Nature Park is an elephant rescue and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar. They have been involved in dozens of rescues which has created their thriving elephant herd.

The park provides a natural environment for elephants, dogs, cats, buffaloes, and many other animals under their care.

Volunteers and visitors contribute to the animals healing while learning about their lives past and present. Arrange a visit to all of their projects in Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar.

Khamla, a baby elephant suffering from a form of herpes virus deadly to Asian Elephants, struggles to take the medications that could save his life.

Because he refused to take his medications orally, the veterinary team and myself administered the antiviral rectally throughout the day and night. 

All elephants under 10 years of age are tested weakly at the Elephant Nature Park. If the virus isn't caught immediately, it can be fatal in as little as 12 hours.
