Description

The Elephant Valley Project is an ecotourism project that provides an alternative approach to elephant care, rehabilitation and conservation. Located 11km from Sen Monorom in Mondulkiri province, it is part of The Elephant Livelihood Initiative Environment. (E.L.I.E) is a non-government organization (NGO) that manages several different wild and captive elephant-based programs in the province.

E.L.I.E.’s primary goal is to improve the health and welfare of captive elephants and assist their wild counterparts protected in the province of Mondulkiri. E.L.I.E.’s secondary goal is to work with the Bunong people who live in the village of Putrom and/or own elephants across the province, assisting them in solving some of the problems that they face every day.
