Currently in conflict, elephants and humans have a hard time living together in Indonesia as elephants are being squeezed into increasingly small areas. The local farmers are taking more land to plant crops, reducing the elephant’s natural habitats. As a result, the elephants frequently raid and destroy the crops which causes this conflict between humans and elephants. Due to this reason, the local government and a wildlife organisation are working together to conserve the elephants and reduce the conflict.
This project is based at the Elephant Conservation Centre, Lampung in Way Kambas National Park.
The volunteers work will consist of a variety of tasks including bathing/showering, feeding and checking the health of the elephants.
