Saying hello to elephants in Thailand

Elephant Rescue in Thailand

Help care for elephants in Thailand.

The mission of this elephant rescue centre is to stop the suffering of these magnificent creatures. They do this by providing a sanctuary for neglected and mistreated elephants that would otherwise be living on the streets of Bangkok or other large cities. The elephants are free to live and roam safely on a large plot of land that has been generously donated to the centre. The care and attention that they receive ensures that they can live healthy and natural lives, no longer having to perform or carry out back-breaking work for the pleasure of tourists.


Volunteers help socialise wildlife in Thailand.

Wildlife Rehabilitation in Thailand

Help care for wildlife rescued in Thailand.

Wild animals in Thailand are experiencing pressures from many sources – loss of habitat, hunting, the illegal pet trade, use of animals by the entertainment industry, and cruelty and abuse by people. In an attempt to help native wildlife this organization runs several projects including hands-on wildlife rescue, wildlife rehabilitation, community education and research. Built on temple land, the centre provides the animals with a huge plot of forest to shelter in during their rehabilitation, or for some to live in for the rest of their lives.

Wildlife Rehabilitation in Indonesia

Help care for wildlife rescued in Indonesia.

Our partner centre is strategically located in Indonesia where it can tackle the cross-border trade. This sustainably-run rescue centre allows authorities to enforce wildlife laws, carry out their raids and confiscate live animals. These animals are offered care and rehabilitation, with the hope of being able to release them back into the wild. Those animals that cannot be released are provided long-term care at the centre. Our partner also supports the protection of wildlife and their habitats through education and advocacy.


Help turtles in Sri Lanka

Sea Turtle Conservation in Sri Lanka

 Help conserve sea turtles in Sri Lanka. 

Five species of sea turtles nest on the beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka, and these turtles are also under threat. In 2005, the “boxing day Tsunami” affected Kosgoda, Sri Lanka tremendously. Hundreds of metres of beach were lost and so were people's livelihoods. Fishing was compromised and even the local tourism industry saw a dramatic decline. Many people are now dependent on the selling of turtle eggs and jewellery made from the shells of Hawksbill turtles.
