EPISODE SLICE #11: Volunteering at a Tiger Temple in Thailand with Robyn Larsen

Are you ready to hear about a FREE and super cool volunteer opportunity? I’ve got Robyn Larsen on the show to talk about her volunteering experience when she took care of tigers at a tiger temple in Thailand. Yes, I said tigers.

A little more about Robyn: She was a Peace Corps Volunteer in the country of Kiribati (pronounced Kid-i-bus), a small island in the Pacific. She also taught English in Korea for three and a half years and was a coworker of mine during her last year.

Here are some highlights from the interview:

  • Logistics – Location of the temple, the application process, and details of the program (cost, accommodation)
  • Safety rules of the temple and monk culture
  • What a typical day as a volunteer is like at the temple (hint: a lot of tiger interaction)
  • Myths about drugging of the tigers at the temple
  • Steps to take to volunteer at and visit the temple

… and so much more!

Info and Sites Mentioned in the Interview:

QUESTION OF THE DAY: Oops! I forgot to ask the question of the day when I recorded the ending. As I write this, I am wearing sweats, my hair is up, and I’m looking a bit disheveled. So, here is the question of the day in written format. Would you want to volunteer with tigers? Why or why not?

    It’s gotta be dangerous, but they seem to take working with tigers in their stride. . . hard to believe they are working with wild animals.

    • Alexa Hart

      Yeah. Some of them were raised there, so those ones might be more docile, but the rescued ones are probably harder to tame.
