ENRICHMENT, SUNBEAR, WILDLIFE
Spend 2 or 4 weeks at the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre where you will be working closely with the keepers to carry out husbandry chores and make enrichment for the sun bears undergoing rehabilitation before they can be released into the wild.
Each sapling you purchase will help to create and reconnect important forest corridors that will benefit the wildlife and support local communities for years to come. The trees will be planted by our team of locals at Lower Kinabatangan Wildlife Sanctuary.Act Now
Homing on “pets for wildlife” as the theme, we are promoting the participation of pets in helping our wildlife and environment. For every pet toy that is purchased, the proceeds will be used to fund our animal welfare and habitat restoration projects.Shop Now!
One of the best things about this programme is that it really benefits the local community. I got immense satisfaction from the knowledge that I had come to Sabah and done a variety of activities that benefitted the local people.
Out of all my experiences last year, when people ask me what I would like to see again… I always say our trees… our little saplings… it’s one of those ‘before I die’ things… I want to see a wild orangutan in our trees!!!!!
“Each individual matters. If you wish to contribute a bit of goodness to wildlife and want to know more about sun bears, here’s definitely the place for it.”
“It’s very difficult to put into words how strongly I feel about this program. Every time we go out into the field to do some physical work for a few hours, it gives me a sense of empowerment. It feels really good to spring into action, connect with nature, learn about conservation and return home with a much better understanding of how it all works.”
Through this project, I get to know a lot of new people and also knowledge about the wildlife. The environment there is also really good for me and I had a lot of good memories with everyone and everything!
I can confirm that it has been the most amazing and rewarding experience of my life. I have never done anything like this and was scared that I wouldn’t be physically able to but everyone quickly made me feel less worried and comfortable.
Experiencing the outstanding beauty of both the wildlife and rainforest will stay with me forever.
My usual cynicism has been expelled and I feel we are contributing in a small way to the restoration of the “corridor of life”. A more sustainable balance between men and the environment.
“Great project. Unlike many other ‘volunteer’ experiences, the work we do here actually matters and actually makes a difference – volunteers feel useful! The staff, ALL the staff, are amazing, so dedicated and hardworking that really care about the bears. But they all still have fun and always so happy to help out and make us feel welcome. The centre is itself is just incredible. Feel so privileged to have been a part of it.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed helping connect the broken fragments of Borneo rain forest desperately needed by the orangutan, sun bear, clouded leopard as well as other important animal and plant species by planting flowering mega-trees which the support the regeneration of this ancient rain forest. It feels wonderful to partake in such an important component of human existence and responsibility”
