The Mondulkiri Project supports a growing community. We currently have three elephants living full time in our sanctuary away from elephant rides and hard physical work. Our community also includes residents of the Putang and Oriang Bunong hill tribe villages. They are employed as mahouts or jungle guides at the Mondulkiri Project.
The Mondulkiri Project’s protected forest is not only home to our elephant sanctuary but also contains many important trees and plants used to make income and food for the local Bunong people.
