Welcome to Elephant Human Relations Aid in Namibia
Elephant Human Relations Aid reduces conflict between elephants and humans by working on the ground, providing practical and realistic solutions. Our award-winning volunteer project enables anyone wanting to volunteer in Africa to contribute towards elephant conservation and really make a difference.
Volunteer with EHRA
Over 1000 people have been volunteers with EHRA in Namibia. The volunteer project is hard work, but very rewarding. You will see the difference your hard work makes to elephant conservation. Volunteers protect the water points the elephants damage and spend a week tracking and collecting data on the local herds, sleeping wild under the stars in the Namibian desert!
The Family Volunteering Project is a great way to have an adventurous, fun-filled holiday and help local Namibian communities and the elephants at the same time. The date for 2015 is 3rd - 12th August.
Read this excellent blog by Billy who was one of the children taking part.
Every year EHRA runs a sponsored trek, 141km over 6 days through the most fantastic areas of the Namibian desert. The aim is to raise money for our conservation programmes, in 2015 funds will go towards our PEACE Project.
The PEACE Project - Elephant Safety Training
EHRA's PEACE Project aims to empower Namibian communities with knowledge and understanding of elephants, which enables them to keep themselves, their family and livestock safe during elephant visits. Training is also provided to communitiy game guards, lodge employees and safari guides.
