There are many conservation volunteering opportunities but few have a real impact on conservation. One that does is Elephant Human Relations Aid, based in Swakopmund, Namibia. EHRA seeks to resolve the dramatic tensions between local elephant herds and the communities with whom they have to co-exist. This small charity is already having a positive impact on the lives of both man and elephant – and volunteers are playing a real part in the process as I found when I joined EHRA back in January 2013.
