Volunteer opportunities and orangutan treks, etc.

Want to trek 10 days in the rainforest to observe orangutans and other wildlife?  Check out the Eco-Trek in the Sumatran Rainforest http://www.orangutans-sos.org/eco-trek/

For those of you interested in volunteering for a project where you get your hands dirty to help protect and save the orangutans we have some links below.

I’m not necessarily endorsing any of these projects or programs.  These are simply orangutan volunteer projects I or someone else has found on the web:

Samboja Lestari Project 


Orangutan Tours

  1. I have worked volunteering with animals in Bolivia, mostly monkeys, loved it with all my heart. I am very keen to help look after and be close to the orangutans for this is my passion. Please if I could have this opportunity, I will do everything I can to help and support the orangutans.

    Thank you Rhiannon

  2. i would like to volunteer to do hands on looking after orphan orangutans i retire from nuresing june 2010 and this a dream i have had for some years now can any one show me what web site is the best for this kind of work thank you sandra

  3. I would like to find out more about your volunteer program.
    I have 4 weeks in September or October I can work with Orangutans.
    I have always wanted to volunteer my time for wildlife, and especially primates.
    I am a 36 year old male living in Canada with my 2 children ages 5-6. I would like to volunteer
    for 4 weeks and also provide a cash donation before I leave. I dont have any sort of formal education
    when it comes to wildlife but I also know its something that is a natural gift that some people are just
    born with, and I certainly have some knowledge of many animals and they have always been
    one of my biggest passions life.
    I would like to learn more about what my duties would be? What skills are required?
    My accommodations and what is expected of me? Will I have any close contacts with the orangutans?
    I would love to bottle feed, prepare/gather food, clean, sleep, and play with them.

    I look forward to hearing from you
