Once you have taken in your new environment and have settled in to your new home, you will be given a briefing session about which activities to expect from your project as well as information regarding elephant behaviour and management. 

Your duties will involve helping the in-country staff wash and feed the elephants as well as planting elephant grass for the elephants to eat.
