OVERVIEW

Spend your summer in the lush Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary, studying the behavior and ecology of the endangered Asian elephant. Examine human-wildlife conflict and conservation pressures, and discuss elephant welfare and management practices. Visit the vibrant city of Phnom Penh and the ancient temples of Angkor to explore the history and culture of Cambodia.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT:
  • Stay at the Elephant Valley Project in the forested Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary to observe Asian elephants from meters away as they forage, bathe, and interact with each other in a protected setting.
The home base for this program is in the heart of the Mondulkiri highlands set on the slopes of the Elephant Valley. Watch the sunset over the forest and fall asleep to the sounds of gibbons and other nocturnal creatures. The valley provides great bird watching – from eagles to hornbills. Spend a portion of the program at the SFS Center in Siem Reap, our most urban location, located near the famed temples of Angkor.
 

SUMMER COMBINED

Take back-to-back summer sessions and get the hands-on learning and skill-building experiences of an internship, while also going off the beaten path and exploring the world. Each summer session focuses on a different topic, and you’ll have time to travel independently between sessions. Receive a $1,000 discount on your second session.
