W are is a non-profit company passionate about creating alternative, significant and sustainable revenue streams to help animal welfare and conservation. We are proud to present a model of true eco-tourism, where funds generated by the volunteers and tourists that we work with are spent directly on our conservation and animal welfare work at the centres and in the areas that we are based, including Matang Wildlife Centre.

Help with Eco Projects
The project will benefit the workawayer by being able to gain experience in an eco-tourism centre, where touching of the animals is not allowed, they will gain an inside knowledge of working for a not-for-profit organisation where funds generation are spent directly on conservation and animal welfare, if working at Matang Wildlife Centre.
Our fundraising businesses include two bars, a hotel, and a beach resort, along with a recently created a candle company to help get waste off Borneo. As is the case with all of our fundraising businesses, 100% of project's share of the profits is used to further conservation and welfare work. We are also interested in volunteers to help with plastic recycling, 3D printing, building, welding, permaculture, farming, composting, videography, photography, web design
