ELIE and the Elephant Valley Project

Elephant Livelihood Initiative Environment (ELIE) is a registered local non-government organization based in Mondulkiri, Cambodia. ELIE’s aim is to improve the health and welfare of the captive elephants in Mondulkiri Province, to work with the local people and the problems that face both people and elephant. The Elephant Valley Project (EVP) is an ecotourism project of ELIE that invites visitors to come and experience these wonderful creatures living in their natural habitat, while providing an alternative approach to elephant care, rehabilitation and conservation and providing employment for the local people.

In addition to the main program at Elephant Valley Project, ELIE runs a number of other programs to help both the captive and wild populations of elephants and the local Bunong communities who work with these elephants. These include a Veterinarian Program, Elephant Research and Monitoring Program, Community Health Cover Program, Indigenous Community Based Association and Land Rights Project and Wild Elephant & Forest Protection Ranger Program.


Options for visiting the Elephant Valley Project

We have a number of options to visit the Elephant Valley Project. One of the most rewarding is to visit as a volunteer. Long term volunteering often starts at a week and can last….well as long as you want. However we find that people are often quite busy with careers, family etc and so a month or so is quite normal.

The experience is all inclusive and we like to try and tailor peoples stays to their skill sets so that the volunteer and the project gets the most out of their stay. If you at all interested in spending your hard earned vacation time here with us in the valley, then please look up the volunteering programs we run with our partner Globalteer and come out to visit.
