Orangutan Conservation Volunteer Project, Indonesia

Join the Borneo Orangutan Conservation project in Indonesia as a volunteer, and assist a project in the forefront of wildlife conservation efforts in this region. Work in a vast rainforest that is home to diverse wildlife, including the largest lowland orangutan population in the world, and contribute to their future protection.

The Borneo Orangutan Conservation Volunteer Project has for the past two decades been working in threatened ecosystems, including the Sebangau forest which is home to the largest population of orangutans in lowland Borneo. Through research, education and restoration efforts, they have created a successful conservation site for wildlife to roam.

Volunteers get to live in and experience a vast Indonesian rainforest home to various wildlife species including wild orangutans, gibbons, sun bears, leopards, deer and plenty of bird species and diverse invertebrate communities. Volunteers actively contribute on conservation efforts made to keep these animals protected for future generations.
