india - the cultural animal lover
Work with majestic animals, visit stunning sites, and discover a culture like no other - India is waiting for you!
Dates: 1st August - 9th September (5 weeks)
Provisional Fundraising target: £2600
2017/18 Expedition Leader: Lorna Reston
The Project works with Wildlife SOS, a local charity in India which runs a sanctuary for rescued elephants and bears. Days will be spent immersed in the care of these beautiful creatures, as well as in construction of new enclosures - essential to allow the sanctuary to continue to grow. It’s an incredible opportunity to leave the tourist track behind and truly embrace Indian wildlife!
Weekends and a final week can be spent indulging in Indian cuisine, investing in numerous ‘essential’ floaty trousers and, of course, visiting the stunning cultural sites India has to offer - with a compulsory visit to the local Wonder of the World, the Taj Mahal. Register your interest now, and get excited for embracing the best of India this summer!

Hello I’m Lorna, a Second Year Human Geographer from Chad’s. Last summer I spent 5 wonderful weeks in Malaysia and Borneo, on the Borneo Expedition, and this year I am leading a team of you guys to India, which I am super excited about. It is going to be a fantastic 5 weeks of volunteering with Elephants and Bears, super fun travel time and much curry consuming. Apart from dreaming about elephants and curry, I am heavily involved with the University Dance Society and the DU Dance Team, President of the Vegetarian and Vegan Society and volunteer regularly with Age UK and Chads’ College Charity Toastie Bar.
