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
"...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."
"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".

The handsome wee Monkey aka Gandalf chillin and appreciating his dinner and his new branches. First thing he did was inspect the knots and do a bit of a stress test. However, three days on and everything is still in place so the volunteers did well with their decorating. ...
