"You will be surprised by how much you are capable of and you will inspire your friends back home to follow their dreams too".
Going to Borneo to work with orang-utans has always been an ambition of mine and it was definitely worth the wait! I loved my experience at Matang and I would go back in a heartbeat. It is hard work but so worthwhile and I surprised myself by how much I could push myself. I feel privileged to have worked with such an amazing array of wildlife and such a dedicated, passionate team of people. Volunteering at the centre has been the most wonderful experience and it has made me even more passionate and determined to work in the conservation sector. I can't wait to go back!
"My 4 weeks at Matang not only achieved a life long dream for me, but also helped me mature and grow in confidence. "
"Yes, it's hard work, but the satisfaction you get from knowing you are helping to make a difference in these animals' lives makes it all worthwhile."
"Going on the 2 week volunteer trip to the Matang Wildlife Centre will remain one of my top 5 life experiences".
