Caring for rescued animals is a life-changing experience. As a volunteer at this centre in Indonesia, you will have the opportunity to care for animals directly impacted by the destruction of the country’s rainforests. Orangutans and other species are at risk due to the loss of their homes, which is causing them to become orphaned or sold into the illegal exotic pet trade.
This centre in Indonesia takes in these animals that have been confiscated from illegal ownership. If possible, these animals will be rehabilitated and prepared for release. However, many are unable to be returned to the wild because of behavioural and health issues, so the centre will become their home.
By volunteering at this program, you’ll have the chance to get close and care for the rescued animals. You’ll interact with them in ways that are safe for them, or observe when necessary. You’ll be responsible for their welfare by creating and implementing enrichment activities. The centre does not promote the exhibition of the animals to the public except under very controlled conditions for education, and there is a strict no-touching policy.
Part of the program also includes working with local villages. The centre employs many local people and offers opportunities where often there would be none. They work hard to promote awareness of the environmental threats and protection of the animals.
Through your time at the wildlife centre you'll have the opportunity to take on multiple activities, including:
