Volunteer Week! What Could You Be Up To If You Book A Last Minute Volunteer Trip?

Posted by Ellie Hutchin on Jun 10, 2017

IAR Orangutan Project

As a volunteer you could have the chance to join the team at IAR and help to construct new platforms and homes for the orangutans to live, learn and play in! This of course all aids their rehabilitation and potential reintroduction to the wild, and if you would like to become a part of something great then please view this project on our website.

The Great Orangutan Project

Bornean Orangutan The Great Projects

Once our flagship project and now a multi-award winning wildlife sanctuary, this project gives you the chance to get stuck in to orangutan conservation deep in the heart of the Bornean rainforest and really make a difference to the efforts being made to protect these apes! To learn a little more take a look here!

The Great Whale Project

This project gives you the chance to assist a team of marine biologists in crucial marine conservation efforts with whales and dolphins, so keep your eyes peeled and you could spot something as amazing as this picture! For a closer look at the project, please check it out in our project page.

So there you have it, what you could be doing if you book a last minute volunteering trip abroad with The Great Projects! For more information head over to our last minute page.
