The mission of interNATIONAL PARKtours and Save Indonesian Endangered Species Fund (SIES) Volunteer Tourism Conservation Program is to protect fragile ecosystems and endangered species by working with grass roots conservation groups internationally and in Australia. The 2019 'Save Orphan Sumatran Elephants' project is based in Sumatra, Indonesia. We commence with one night in Denpasar to assign tasks, followed by nine nights at Satwa Elephant EcoLodge, the gateway to Way Kambas National Park. Here we work closely with local NGO (Non-Government Organisation) ALeRT (The Alliance of Integrated Forest Conservation), the Elephant Conservation Centre and local communities through direct assistance and hands-on activities to ensure important projects are completed. Duties vary ranging from painting, renovation, rubbish retrieval to rehabilitation of habitat destruction and creation of gardens and observation towers. There is time to meet with national park rangers and local villages, as well as participating in the daily care of orphan baby elephants - truly a life-changing experience. This trip raises urgently needed funds for life sustaining items such as animal food, ongoing medical and professional care for endangered wildlife and animal carers. All you need to be is passionate about wildlife, have a sense of adventure and be ready to get your hands dirty in remote rural areas. Your energy, compassion and skills can make a real difference to the environment, animals and the lives of the people you meet.
