Oyster Worldwide Gold Residential – Volunteer with orangutans in Borneo

Volunteer with orangutans and other creatures at a rescue centre and sanctuary in beautiful Borneo.

These orangutans have been rescued from the cruel tourist or pet trade, where they were kept in tiny enclosures for many years. They now have the chance to live a life as close to the wild as possible, and your task will be to help care for them:

– food preparation
– feeding
– enrichment
– cleaning enclosures
– general maintenance of the sanctuary
– basic construction tasks
– monitoring

In addition to the orangutans, the centre is also home to sun bears, leopards and other primates. You will be lucky enough to work with a wide variety of animals.


You will be living on-site in volunteer houses. The project is self-catered and you will have a kitchen to prepare your meals in. You will receive a weekly food budget.

Free time

You will have two days off per week to explore this stunning pocket of paradise.
