It is important for everybody to become connected to the issues facing humanity and the planet, and empowered to realise solutions. APE has developed volunteer programs to achieve this goal. Participants will fund the enhancement of ongoing conservation projects and physically contribute in the implementation thereof with their manpower in activities such as interpretation, husbandry, enrichment, infrastructure building, rehabilitation and release of animals, habitat restoration as well as community involvement and education.
APE terms this “connecting everyday people to endangered animals “. You will have the unique opportunity to experience first-hand the social and environmental issues of that project, and form an appreciation of the realities of conservation and human development. Ultimately, you will relate your experiences back to everyday life, broadening your understanding and cultural horizons, and opening up further opportunities to make a difference in your life.

APE Malaysia projects are not tours. APE Malaysia projects have specific animal welfare, community and habitat restoration outcomes that need to be achieved and participants will partake and contribute towards achieving these objectives. APE Malaysia projects are fun and fulfilling because the projects make a real difference not only while you are on the project but also in the long term even after you leave. We strive to ensure learning, contribution and satisfaction levels are very high on every project.
Our projects have targets and schedules that need to be followed. Your participation and contribution is key to a successful project because project site partners have high expectations of APE Malaysia participants – YOU. Therefore participants are expected to contribute their best while on the project. The best experience for participants is created when you bring positive energy and put in everything you can.
You will work hard, get dirty and sweat a lot, but you will enjoy every second of it.
