Volunteering to Help the Orangutan Foundation
We need your help and volunteering opportunities exist in the UK both at our office and at various events, and also in Indonesia via our Volunteer Programme.
UK - General duties at the London office
We welcome volunteers to come into the office with specific skills. We currently have a small team and would appreciate assistance when needed!
Please do email us if you think you can contribute – keep in mind sometimes all we need is an extra pair of hands!
Office hours are between 9.30am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
We understand that volunteers are available when their work and family commitments allow. If you are only available weekends or evenings there may also be the occasional opportunity to help at events or with merchandise sales.
If you want to volunteer in the London office please contact us.
Volunteering in Indonesia
Our Volunteer Programme promises some exciting opportunities for adventurous individuals! Not only do volunteers participate in fieldwork that really makes a difference to our conservation work, they also get a chance to see orangutans in their natural habitat.
