    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The travellers or volunteers will learn many things especially about wildlife biology, local traditional life, tourism and language. They will also learn how to interact with the tourists in my tourism business.

  • Help


    We are looking for English speaking volunteer to prepare the proposals to be applied for the grants as we have to keep continue to rescue all protected species in captivity and it requires operational costs. The volunteer will be also involved with the wildlife rescue actions (reptile, raptor and primate), English writers of our wildlife study report for publication, and teach English to the ex-poachers who are now working as our jungle trekking guides.
