People are travelling to Thailand mostly for holidays. There are some exceptions, like these overseas volunteers who have chosen to work during their time off. They work at an Elephant Nature Reserve, where they learn about the elephants' lifestyle in the wild and their feeding habits. The volunteers take turns in chores like bathing the elephants, sweeping up their dung, making their food and cleaning the park. The Elephant Nature Park was founded by Sangduen “Lek” Chailert, whose work has gained recognition from the international community. She believes the volunteer program is one way to educate the world about the plight of elephants, especially those that have been abused in tourism and the logging industry. So in this reserve, these elephants have found their sanctuary. There are roughly 4,000 elephants in Thailand, 3,000 of which are believed to be in captivity.
