VOLUNTEER PROGRAMME 2016
Application period now closed. Please e-mail for more information on upcoming volunteer programmes.
Now in its 16th year, our volunteer programme is like no other - not only will you experience essential hands-on conservation work but you will also see the endangered orangutan in its natural habitat. This year our volunteers will be taking part in a community-based project to build a new guard post in the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve!
Date: 25th July - 15th August (arrival and departure dates in/out of Pangkalan Bun)
Location: Lamandau Wildlife Reserve, Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo
PATRICK ARYEE: A NEW PATRON FOR ORANGUTANS
We at the Orangutan Foundation are extremely proud to welcome wildlife presenter Patrick Aryee as our newest patron!
As a science and wildlife TV presenter, who has successful programmes with the BBC and Sky1 under his belt, Patrick is the perfect advocate for orangutan conservation. He has just returned from filming orangutans in the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve, so knows first-hand the work we do, as well as the struggles we continue to face.
We are incredibly grateful for his support and very much look forward to having him on board!
LAMANDAU TO BE FEATURED ON NEW WILDLIFE SERIES WITH SKY1
That’s a wrap! The Orangutan Foundation has just finished filming with Patrick Aryee and the wildlife filmmakers at Offspring Films, who have chosen the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve to be featured in their new series with Sky1!
As an addition to Sky1’s existing ‘An Amazing Animal Family’ programmes, the series will explore the eccentricities of primates living all over the globe, as well as showcase the importance of conservation.
We have had an incredible time working with both Patrick and the rest of the team at Offspring Films, and we can’t wait for all of our supporters to see the final product later this year!
