Care, Rehabilitation and Release of Orang-Utans on Malaysia Peninsula

Pays d’action: Malaisie, Asie
Type d’activité: Ecovolontariat
Help care and rehabilitate rescued and abused Orang-Utans near Taipeng. The sanctuary is a conservation facility and referral centre for the endangered Bornean Orang-Utan. You'll focus on conservation & research, including enrichment, husbandry, organic planting, as well as construction and maintenance of the sanctuary, to help provide the Orang-Utans with a healthy and happy future.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

The project is on a 35-acre island in a freshwater lakeside. The Sanctuary looks after 24 Orang-Utans.
The Orang-Utans are not often released. The babies stay with their mothers for the first 4-5 years and then they need a few more years to learn how to find food for themselves. The sanctuary only releases an Orang-Utan when it's ready to survive in the wild
You'll participate in any and all jobs that are required for the Sanctuary’s maintenance and development.
The example shown below may differ slightly at different times and work is assigned depending on what's needed at the time you're there:
You'll help produce enrichment materials for the Orang-Utans to promote natural behaviours and enhance their wellbeing. You’ll observe them from a safe distance and learn how they adapt and use the materials - a very rewarding exercise!
This will include preparing the food for the Orang-Utans, taking care to ensure that those on a special diet receive the type of food that has been specified for them
Husbandry simply means cleaning, feeding and caring for captive animals. You’ll also give valuable assistance in farming and planting in order to ensure the Orang-Utans have the quality foods they need. You'll also help to care for the Orang-Utan exhibition area.
Helping to build and erect climbing structures for the Orang-Utans. These are very necessary for them to build up their skills. Also helping to building boardwalks for easier tourist and keeper access around the centre.
The rainforest is a harsh environment for the longevity of any man-made structures. Therefore, anything that we build needs regular maintenance to ensure that it doesn't rust/rot/get eaten by termites within a couple of years. This work usually involves a lot of cleaning, painting and repairing.
You won't get to hold or touch the Orang-Utans, because the objective is to train Orang-Utans to home their survival skills and hopefully they will be released to the wild one day. Food is prepared for them, but not spoon-fed to them. Orang-utans in the sanctuary have to learn where to look for food.
