Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation CentreEdit

IntroductionEdit

This Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre is situated on a large plot of land not far from the beach in a tropical paradise in Indonesia. North Sulawesi is Indonesia’s gateway to the Philippines, a major trade route also for smuggling illegal wildlife out of the country, a prime place for you to volunteer in Indonesia. There are many endangered species at the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Indonesia, including many rare birds, primates and other wildlife. Orangutans, gibbons and critically endangered macaques are among some of the animals undergoing care at this centre along with sun bears, rusa deer and the fascinating babirusa. A rehabilitation and release programme for native species is also under operation.'




***** We are not currently accepting volunteers to this particular project *****

Volunteer DutiesEdit

Volunteers in Indonesia will spend a significant amount of time preparing food for the animals, serving it to them and cleaning their enclosures. This includes a variety of ancillary jobs, such as cleaning food bowls, equipment and food preparation areas. Other time is spent preparing enrichments for the animals and also giving tours to visiting tourists as well as assisting development of the education centre. Depending upon the number of volunteers and ongoing activities at the time, there will also be work in connection with building/upgrading enclosures, usually involving a lot of digging and painting.


The types and variety of duties will depend largely on the duration of stay of each volunteer and number and skills of volunteers participating. Some of the work is also seasonal and dependent upon available resources on-site at the time.


Volunteer requirementsEdit

Volunteers with enthusiasm, compassion for animals, team spirit, and who are fit enough to work hard in a hot and humid climate are desired to assist with this wildlife rehabilitation project in Sulawesi. No animal experience is necessary, although representatives from relevant fields are more than welcome to contribute to the team.

Bird Rescue North SalawesiEdit

We require animal volunteers all year around to assist in caring for victims of the illegal wildlife trade. Over 20 species of birds, many endangered, from all over the Indonesian archipelago are undergoing refuge and rehabilitation at our centre in Sulawesi until they can safely be released. This wildlife rehabilitation centre is situated on a large plot of land along the beach in a tropical paradise in Indonesia. North Sulawesi is Indonesia’s gateway to the Philippines, a major trade route also for smuggling illegal wildlife out of the country, and is a perfect place to volunteer with animals in Indonesia.
