The time I spent on the internship in Thailand helped me grow so much as a person. Working with the elephants every day made me realise that this is the sort of thing I want to do with my life, to use my animal biology degree for conservation and research and this project was great experience for that. Even if you aren't interest in a future in conservation this project may still be for you. I also had so much fun at school and nursery with the children and learning the local language, Pakinyaw, and interacting with the villagers. I think the project is really beneficial for the elephants and the community and would recommend it to anyone.
