Hi everyone

Im new to Travellerspoint and was hoping for some help/advise.

My partner and myself are travelling later this year in august, on our travel's where heading to laos for a couple of weeks, we had seen a web site telling us about volunteer work in a elephant santury in laos, but since seeing that site we cant find it again, it offered staying there for $35 a week and a sign up fee of £200

Does anyone know of other cheap volunteering places in laos where your helping out with local wildlife??

I tried contacting them, but they haven't got back to me yet. If you make any progress please could you let mw know?

Thanks

If you make a short trip to Cambodia, you could volunteer at a wonderful school:

Spent many weeks there and they were the best of our lives!

If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to be in contact.

hi - there are 2 elephant camps near luang prabang that do eco-tourism, they might be able to help. The oldest is TigerTrail, website www.tigertrail-laos.com or www.tigertrail_laos.com
You could also try the french NGO that organises the annual elephant festival here - website www.elefantasia.org
cheers
