Help to care for over 300 rescued animals whilst living on site. The centre is located on temple grounds and this project can easily be combined with our Elephant Care project. By volunteering at the Wildlife Rescue centre you will make a major contribution to the welfare of animals in Thailand.
The centre would not be able to run without the hard work of the volunteers and their financial support; the majority of the volunteer fees go directly to the centre, providing a vital source of funding for their future work. On a personal level you will have a unique opportunity to work alongside some incredible wildlife and gain the satisfaction of helping to make a difference to their lives.
What to Expect?
Volunteer at a wildlife rescue centre, caring for an amazing variety of wild animals that are being given shelter.
There are currently over 300 rescued animals, with just over 200 primates. This includes 5 different species of macaque, 2 species of gibbon, civets, a tiger, sun bears and Asiatic black bears, a crocodile, exotic birds and many more. The exact nature of the work you will be doing varies all the time and there is no such thing as a 'typical' day. However there are certain everyday jobs that will be your responsibility; primarily feeding the animals and assisting with cleaning the enclosures.
A rota system is followed for these jobs so that the duties are fairly distributed. In addition to this you will probably be involved with, amongst other things, the construction of new cages and enclosures, working on enclosure enrichments, assisting with tours for visitors, maintenance work for cages and the gibbon islands, and keeping the centre's grounds clean.
