"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."
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!!
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!

"Going on the 2 week volunteer trip to the Matang Wildlife Centre will remain one of my top 5 life experiences".
"My 4 weeks at Matang not only achieved a life long dream for me, but also helped me mature and grow in confidence. "
Situ reckons she can do a better job than Daenerys at ruling the realm. However, she will start with ruling over the rest of the sun bears at Matang from her tyre throne 😂 Thanks to our volunteer Kathleen for the picture of her majesty! #queen #gameofbears ...
