Orangutan Foundation Volunteer Programme(February 06, 2017)
Want something different to do on holiday? Then how about volunteering for the Orangutan Foundation's Volunteer Programme?
This programme is in its 17th year. It runs from 24 July to 14 August (please check the website for dates in case of a change) and takes place in tropical rainforest, Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, in critical orangutan habitat.
Volunteers take part in conservation fieldwork that makes a difference, and they often get to see ex-captive and often wild orangutans in their natural habitat.
The website says there is no direct hands-on contact with the orangutans. Cost is £700 (again please check) and places are limited but this is a great chance to make a difference.
