The Orangutan Foundation is the foremost orangutan conservation
organisation. We are saving the endangered orangutan by protecting its
tropical forest habitat, working with local communities and promoting
research and education.

Now in its 16th year, our volunteer programme is like no other – not
only will you experience essential hands-on conservation work but you
will also see the endangered 
orangutan in its natural habitat.

Date: 25th July – 30th August  (arrival and departure dates in/out of Pangkalan Bun)

Location: Lamandau Wildlife Reserve, Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo

Project: A community-based project to help build a
new guard post adjacent to the newly established 8,000 hectare
extension of the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve! This guard post, based on
the river that borders the reserve, is crucial to preventing illegal
activities such as illegal logging. Lamandau is one of the few sites in
Indonesia where rescued orangutans can be safely released back into the
wild, and our volunteers will be some of the first to explore this area
of the reserve and discover the wildlife within it. This project will be
a unique opportunity to take part in conservation work while living in
orangutan habitat!

Includes a three day boat tour of Tanjung
Puting National Park (guaranteed sightings of wild    orangutans) and a
trip to the famed Camp Leakey. There will also be an exclusive
opportunity to visit nearby orangutan feeding sites at our release camps
in the Lamandau Wildlife Reserve.

Cost: £985 – includes all construction materials,
meals, accommodation and local transport from the 25th to departure on
the 30th. Excludes international flights. Places are limited.

Note: There is no hands-on contact with orangutans.
Deadline: 31/05/2016
