My sister Heather Kienapple and I are volunteering in Thailand throughout May 2016 to help with the elephants and wildlife. Elephants in Thailand, both wild and domesticated, are now struggling for their survival. A century ago there were over 100,000 elephants in Thailand (both wild and domesticated) however it is now estimated that there are only approximately 2,500 captive domesticated elephants left and around 1,000 in the wild in Thailand’s forests. We will help care for these elephants by cleaning their enclosures, harvesting food (bananas and pineapples), cleaning the elephants and feeding them.

Wildlife Rescue Centre (in the same location) where there are currently over 300 rescued animals, with just over 200 primates. This includes 5 different species of macaque, 5 species of gibbon, civets, sun bears and Asiatic black bears, a crocodile and exotic birds. These animals have been neglected, abused or injured and have now been put into the care of the staff and voulnteers. Without the volunteers this program would not be able to operate. We will help care for the wildlife by feeding them, cleaning their enclosures and prepare them for the day that they are released back into the wild.

Our payment and your donations help keep this centre running. No matter how big or how small, every little bit counts. We greatly appreciate your support, and we will be thinking of you while caring for these helpless animals.
