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 2014 is 4th - 14th 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 2014 funds will go towards our PEACE Project.
Desert Elephant Conservation
Namibia's desert-dwelling elephants are one of only 2 populations of elephants in Africa living in a desert environment (the other is in Mali). Competition with humans over scarce water resources causes conflict, which threatens the elephants' existence.
