The most memorable part of the holiday was being around the bears all day and particularly when the tourists had gone we had the place to ourselves. (more)Rhiannon Lewis
Excellent. A great, unique program that can only be experienced in Romania at this sanctuary. And a fulfilling and mutually reciprocal volunteer experience: we got as much satisfaction and enjoyment out of the experience of helping the bears and the sanctuary as they hopefully benefited from our work. It's very fun! (more)Heather Jain

Meeting the bears and being able to really make a difference to their day-to-day lives with enrichment, feeding and cleaning; some of the things we were doing (such as enrichment to keep the bears active and happy) wouldn't get done unless we were there to help out! (more)Heather Reynolds
We were so close to the bears and keepers that you feel part of the project rather than just a short stay helper. I think we were really lucky... to have the baby bear (Lola) arrive when we were there too. (more)Anon

Memorable parts? I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets.

From
£769
excluding flights
Memorable parts? It was very interesting observing and learning about the elephants. Following the elephants up into the forest was exciting, and I loved getting so close to the elephants and getting to touch them. Tips? Make sure that you bring an old pair of pants, top, shoes and gloves if you end up doing some wall painting, as you will get paint all over your new clothes. But it's so much fun doing work around the camp, no matter how dirty you get! Local benefits? I feel... (more)Sue San

The next time I would definitely bring a bigger tent and 2 very strong head torches. My tent was ok for 2 weeks but for a longer period it would be to small. A very strong head torch is a...

Memorable parts? There were many. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Being surrounded by other volunteers committed to improving the world condition was inspiring. The work was challenging but it was obvious that the volunteers were necessary and helped to improve the animals daily life. Tips?

Memorable parts? Being in a group of mostly 20-somethings was a wee window into their world! Handling the monkeys was pretty extraordinary! Tips? Just be prepared to get dirty and for quite physical work. Local benefits? Yes we were directly looking after animals. Overall rating? It was a very interesting experience and we both learned a lot. But I think my 'roughing it' days are over; I was really glad to get to a nice, clean hotel at the end! (more)Mela Greenslade
