"You will be surprised by how much you are capable of and you will inspire your friends back home to follow their dreams too".
In the past 2 weeks I've done more than I ever thought possible. I've helped with enrichment and husbandry at Matang Wildlife Centre with orangutans, sun bears, gibbons and many others. Seen flying lemers glide, wild pigs run on the beach, sunsets like no other, been bitten by a leech, mixed cement by hand, carried wheel barrow after wheel barrow and shovelled so much s*?it I'm considering adding it to skills on my c.v. I've learnt so much and it's been a truly life changing experience and to top it off I've met some amazing people! I'll be back Borneo!
Volunteered April 2016
"My 4 weeks at Matang not only achieved a life long dream for me, but also helped me mature and grow in confidence. "
"...The whole experience was amazing, the keepers were so friendly and taught us so much about the animals... It was one of the best experiences of my life and would do it again."
I've been every year since 2009 and will continue to visit every year until I become too old and doddery to get on a plane. The most life changing experiences of my life!!
Attention graphic designers and illustrators! Our current fundraiser t-shirts sell very well but we are looking to add another t-shirt design to our merchandise in time for Christmas. We would love to encourage those of you with graphic design skills to submit a t-shirt design to us.
Volunteering is what we live and breathe so we wouldn't be offering a financial reward to the winner just the satisfaction of seeing your design go to print and knowing that you've used your skill to help conserve wildlife, as if that feeling wouldn't be cool enough we will throw in a free t-shirt to the person with the winning design ;)
If you would like to submit an entry please private message me Bron Browning or Orangutan Project for details. ...
A massive thank you goes out to Anji! Anj recently headed back home to the UK after four years of #volunteering in our charity bars. Our non-profit businesses are integral to our organisation as they enable us to raise money for #conservation endeavours. Thank you so much Anj for your contribution to Orangutan Project and the wildlife of Borneo and beyond!
If you too would like to do your bit for conservation by volunteering at one of our non-profit businesses send us a message! 😃🌴🍻🥂🍸🍽 ...
