Whilst orangutan volunteering in Borneo, we work with a local wildlife centre to re-establish rehabilitation and release of orangutans into the Malaysian State of Sarawak. The orangutan sub-species, Pongo Pygmaeus Pygmaeus, is the most endangered of all the orangutan species and needs urgent action now. Your help and manpower goes towards working with local people, Malaysian authorities and universities, and international experts and charities to find a sustainable solution to the problem of orangutan decline.
We are committed to low impact responsible tourism and we offset your carbon dioxide, recycle wherever possible, support local communities financially and educationally, and work towards changing attitudes towards conservation at every level of society. By volunteering you will become part of a community and experience the rainforest lifestyle in the company of orangutans and other exotic animals such as sunbears, gibbons, monkeys, crocodiles, something that few people ever get to experience. And all this whilst contributing to the real changes to save the orangutan.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
