Hey I’m Sam
I currently have the great pleasure, of fulfilling the role as an advocate for ThailandElephants.org. This enables me to carry on supporting both wild and captive elephants, whilst carrying out an Animal Conservation and Biodiversity Degree back here in the UK.
My background before now, comprises of 2 years working experience in the captive wildlife sector, before having the great pleasure of being introduced to the field conservation sector along with our fantastic founder Gemma. This field role involved working with semi-wild elephants in Thailand, to provide ethical and sustainable alternatives to many of the detrimental camps throughout the country. This was a truly inspiring experience, pushing me to return to the UK to obtain a Conservation degree before spending the remainder of my career in this field. It is what also inspired me to try and do more, whilst back here in the UK so far away from the elephants I came to love.
So please, if you have passion and enthusiasm, get in touch to find out more about the role of an advocate or indeed any other way you would like to support our work. I have personally seen how vital the work we do is, and can say to any of you with complete confidence your help and support will be appreciated by us and more importantly the beautiful elephants we aim to help :)
