Volunteer

Volunteers are the backbone to an organization. They provide time, energy and talents that can produce game changing and historical events. They generate enthusiasm and interest that help to create a positive image of the organization. Elephanatics has been lucky enough to find some of these people, but we are always in search of more talent.

We are looking for volunteers for the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos that takes place every October. The march is a huge undertaking and requires help throughout the year as well as the day of. I have attached a sheet of volunteer opportunities for both. Please select an opportunity you feel you could help with.

Join the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos in Vancouver, or join/plan a march in your own city!

Last year Vancouver joined 137 cities and over 50,000 people worldwide who marched to raise awareness of the elephant and rhino poaching crisis facing these two species and to call for an end to the ivory and rhino horn trade that is pushing them rapidly towards extinction. Join us here!
