In South Africa, BTEH is conducting elephant behaviour and social research to develop integrated conservation strategies that benefit elephants and people simultaneously. We host participatory community workshops to plan conservation action and empower community members to be involved in nature conservation and gain benefits from living near elephants.
As a pioneer research volunteer, you can help Bring The Elephant Home (BTEH) with research projects focusing on elephant and human wellbeing in South Africa. Tasks vary from elephant behaviour monitoring, elephant identification, educational and community programs, as well as tasks related to communication, data analysis and running a conservation NGO. We look forward to your application. You can find all you need to know on this web page.
