Laos Elephant Conservation

When it comes to Ecotourism, Laos is leading the way. With lush emerald rice fields and mountains covered in tea-leaves, Laos has one of the greenest landscapes you’ll ever see. Through various conservation projects and initiatives, there is an emphasis on protecting this stunning natural wonderland and the many species of wildlife that call it home.

The majestic Asian elephants are one the main attractions and you will get to meet them up close at the Conservation Centre. It’s here you’ll get the chance to work closely with the professional team, learning about and taking care of this endangered species.

This is a once in a lifetime experience for every budding conservationist, biologist or animal lover.
