Elephant Valley Project


Elephant Valley Project (EVP) is a sanctuary for overworked and abused captive elephants in Mondulkiri province (northeastern Cambodia).  Under the direction of Jack Highwood, the sanctuary is one of many initiatives under ELIE (Elephant Livelihood Initiative Environment), a non-profit organization whose aims include elephant welfare, forest conservation, and local community development.  EVP’s twelve retired elephants spend their time roaming, grazing, bathing, and socializing in the project’s 650 hectares of natural forest.  This exceptional amount of land gives the rescued elephants the freedom to live as much like wild elephants as possible.

EVP is also dedicated to wild elephant conservation.  Over twenty percent of annual revenues are spent on funding specialized law enforcement teams who patrol and protect nearby forests, an effort unprecedented among captive elephant establishments.

Once you make your way to Sen Monorom, EVP will pick you up from your guesthouse and transport you to the project site.  You will follow one of the family groups through the forest, observe the elephants’ natural behaviors, and learn about their individual stories.  Day, overnight, short and long-term volunteer opportunities are available.
