Orangutan Awareness Week - Save 15%

To celebrate Orangutan Awareness Week 2021, we are offering 15% off all our sanctuary-based orangutan volunteer projects for all travel dates in 2022 and 2023 when you secure your place by November 30th. This offers a great opportunity for anyone who is passionate about orangutans to travel to Borneo, get involved, and help make a difference to the future of the species.

 

SANCTUARY-BASED VOLUNTEERING

Join us in Borneo, where you will live and work in an orangutan rehabilitation centre! Whilst volunteering, you can expect to get involved in a variety of activities from helping to prepare the orangutans’ food, to creating exciting enrichment items such as puzzle feeders to help teach them the skills they will need in the wild. With each project offering a variety of different animal activities and experiences to get involved in, why not read our ‘Which orangutan project is right for me?’ article or click the links below to find out what sets them apart and discover which project is best suited to you!

WHO VOLUNTEERS?

With over 500 volunteers joining our orangutan conservation projects each year, we welcome a great mix of people from all around the world. The majority join us as solo travellers and though the ages of volunteers range from 18 to 75, they all have one thing in common: a passion for orangutans and a desire to help make a difference to their future.

If you're keen to get involved, why not learn a little more about our orangutan conservation projects below, and see how your next holiday could help secure a future for one of the most endangered and incredible species on the planet!
