With plans to go on to being a vet, Alex wanted the chance to volunteer hands on with animals. That's exactly what she got during her week stay at the Thailand Elephant Sanctuary with Frontier. Her experiences however, went above and beyond just caring for the elephants.
For two weeks Izzy jumped head first into a volunteering project in an Elephant Sanctuary in Thailand helping to feed and look after the Elephants there. Making new friends (both human and Elephant) and getting up close and personal with one of her favourite animals certainly made the trip a memorable one.
Carys spent month in Thailand experiencing the country and helping on different volunteering projects. She helped in an orphanage and a school and worked on a beach conservation project and in exchange learnt a lot about the culture from the locals and the children she was teaching.
Devon volunteered at our Gibbon sanctuary in Thailand hoping to learn more about the animal she had so much interest in. By the end of her trip it was not just gibbons she had learnt about, but also many other animals, as well as the Thai culture.
