Thailand’s rainforests and mountain slopes are home to a fantastic array of wildlife. Home to the oldest evergreen rainforest in the world, huge limestone mountains that shoot up into the air, deep valleys, clear-blue lakes, and ominous caves, it is a place full of excitement and beauty.
From elephants to gibbons to sea turtles, learn directly from local experts about the threats and efforts in place to conserve the wildlife and nature of the region. To achieve our purpose, clean turtle enclosures and prepare meals, clean the moss off of the turtle shells and apply medicine to injured turtles, bathe, feed, and clean elephant enclosures at an elephant sanctuary, and finally learn from conservationists about the protection in place for Thailand’s gibbons at a local rescue center.
