"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."
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".
"You will be surprised by how much you are capable of and you will inspire your friends back home to follow their dreams too".
"...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."
