Complete Your Animal-based Studies At LCTW

The Laos Conservation Trust for Wildlife (LCTW) is the first and only wildlife rescue, conservation, and education centre in Lao PDR. We work with Lao authorities to rescue and release as many native species back into a life in the wild, and are involved in many global conservation and educational programmes. We have just under 500 animals under our wing, including macaques, gibbons, bears, leopard cats, binturongs, civets, and many others. At the LCTW, we facilitate individual and group research projects in areas such as behavior, nutrition, husbandry, and also studies monitoring the illegal wildlife trade and our rehabilitation processes.

Volunteer at the LCTW Wildlife Hospital!

At the LCTW we currently care for a huge variety of species numbering just under 500 animals! We currently run a wildlife hospital for the residents of the Lao Zoo and LCTW, which includes rescued patients from the illegal wildlife trade here in Laos. We always have at least one Veterinarian whom volunteers will be working with. The diversity of wildlife and taxa housed at Lao Zoo, mostly consisting of native South East Asian species and partly comprised of wildlife from other continents provides a very engaging caseload for any volunteers interested in the wildlife veterinary field.

Volunteer With Endangered Wildlife At LCTW

The LCTW is the first and only wildlife rescue, conservation, and education centre in Lao PDR. We actively rescue, rehabilitate and release native species back into a life in the wild while being involved in global conservation and education programmes! With just under 500 animals to care for, we need volunteers' help to feed, clean, and enrich our residents! Our volunteers get to help with the development of turning the national Lao Zoo into a world-class rescue centre by building new enclosures, renovating old enclosures, and general maintenance around the centre! Come get your hands dirty with us!
