Happy Birthday Maggie the Mermaid!

Our last day at the sanctuary and no one wants to leave! We all had breakfast together then collected our blessed scarves and headed out to take one last photo with Arun-Rea and Sarai-Mia. They walked behind everyone to where the photo would be taken, then they decided to take the lead and individually say…



Green Thumbs

Wow, what an awesome day! We all woke up and had breakfast then headed to the nursery to collect 600 TREES! We formed conveyor belts with our hands and individually passed the trees over to fill up both trailers and the ute. Once we had grabbed all the trees we could, we headed through the…



Teaching Children and Tarot readings.

Today we all got up and ready to start a jam packed day of teaching at the rural school close by. We all shared breakfast together, then jumped in the car, van and ute and were ready. Once we arrived all the children came running out to greet us and we started getting all our…



Jungle warriors.

Another big day today. We all assembled and enjoyed breakfast together before heading out to start the day. The group that dug the holes yesterday were able to get their things ready and head out on the jungle walk with the elephants. They absolutely loved it! It was crazy walking them through their natural habitat…



start monkeying around!

What a wake up call! All the elephants squeaking, the Gibbons howling and most puppies barking. Not including all the geckos!

Goodbye to the geckos.

Last morning in our cute little bungalows overlooking the elephants and sharing our rooms with many geckos and other cute little critters. The time has gone by so quick, but I think everyone is a little too excited for air-conditioning. We had a last breakfast altogether with the puppies and then headed out to say…



fighters for the forest

Waking up this morning and realising its our last full day in the sanctuary is a bit of a sad thought, but everyone was wide awake and ready to start the day and of course dig more holes! First things first, breakfast!! Then we all headed over to the nursery to collect our new trees…



magic under the moonlight

What an amazing sound to wake up too, the beautiful elephants all squeaking and chatting amongst each other. We started the day again with cleaning the shelter, then we all piled into the van, and had a little adventure to the local school to meet the students and teach them some new and exciting educational…
