I have paid a deposit for a months volunteer placement at your project but i have just seen that you are on the Bad List of Volunteers Beware and that worries me. Can you justify.
Hi Susan. Thank you for the enquiry. And thank you for contacting us directly in this regard. Please know that the people who run this 'page' have never been to the Park and have never actually taken the time to find out who we are and what we do. As far as I understand, their placing us on the 'bad' list has to do with the fact that we offer elephant rides; and in their opinion, this is "bad". Should you wish to really find out how 'good' our programme is, I can put you in touch with hundreds of volunteers who have been here, seen what we do and fallen in love with our elephants. We would love to have you join our team and experience it for yourself - and then decide on how good we really are! YIf you need any more details, you can contact the volunteer programme directly, via either of our websites (knysna elephant park / aeru (african elephant research unit - our onsite research facility).
