Travel Experience

The Elephant Valley Project is an experience like nothing else; trek into the elephant’s natural jungle habitat and observe these amazing animals being themselves. There is no riding, no tricks, no shows and no stress. Spend hours walking with them learning about their trials, tribulations and amazing stories.

Responsibility

For the past 10 years, the Elephant Valley Project has worked hard to develop the best sanctuary for captive elephants in Cambodia and support local people to be able to access stable jobs with opportunities to grow. The purpose of the project is to firstly improve the health and welfare of the captive elephants in Mondulkiri Province, and work to conserve the wild elephants’ natural habitat. Secondly, they support the local community to protect their forest and nature. Thirdly, they provide employment and job-based training to the Bunong community. Through their programs the impoverished families receive food existence, more than 2,400 local people receive full health care coverage, over 300 schools support the children seeking education. Besides this, they provide community support programs to settle these pressures. They consider themselves a key part of the community they live in and work for.

Business Case

Elephant Livelihood Initiative Environment (E.L.I.E) is a registered Cambodian NGO and nonprofit organization which can run everything in the project by supporters’ and visitors’ donation. They can choose to sponsor monthly or as long as they want. Funds from them will be used to pay for costs in the project such as elephant food, mahouts wages, and elephant sanctuary. When people become a sponsor will get a sponsorship certification from E.I.L.E. Moreover, the donation can help the project keep running and developing fundraising programs to support the local community, forest, and elephant. Elephants Valley Project also provides an opportunity for people who want to be a volunteer so they can participate and learn about forest, community, conservation and elephant.
