Jump right into the sights, sounds, smells, and smiles of Cambodia and Thailand on this animal conservation program. We will see first-hand the effects of deforestation as the roadside changes from lush trees to sparse dots of jungle. Here we will be visiting coffee plantations, massive waterfalls, local villages, and rubber plantations. We will work with the Elephant Valley Project not only rehabilitating rescued domestic elephants, but also working on preserving the jungle for the remaining wild elephant populations. It will be a truly up close and personal experience with these beautiful, but endangered creatures.

As we always work on community-requested projects, our work is subject to change depending on the community's needs at the time we are there.
OG combines meaningful volunteer experiences with cultural exchange and off-the-beaten path adventure, which means you'll also get to explore Indian cuisine, culture, history, and geography of the country.
