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.

Location: Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo.

Duration: 3 week

Date: 22nd July – 12th August 2019 (arrival and departure dates in/out of Pangkalan Bun, Indonesian Borneo).

2020 dates are likely to be similar to 2019. To express your interest in joining our 2020 Volunteer Programme please email info@orangutan.org.uk

Project: This project will be a unique opportunity to take part in orangutan conservation while living and working in orangutan habitat. Previous projects have included construction of orangutan release sites and guard posts in protected areas, renovating a tropical forest research station and an information centre. All projects directly benefit orangutan conservation. All volunteers will visit Tanjung Puting National Park where there will be a chance to see both rehabilitated and wild orangutans.

Cost: £900 - includes all meals, accommodation and local transport from arrival on the 22nd July to departure. Excludes international and internal flights. 
Places are strictly limited and are given on a first come first served basis, after an interview.

Note: There is no hands-on or direct contact with orangutans, this is for the benefit of the apes.
