An orangutan at the rescue centre in Borneo“This has been a great experience so far. It is hard, stinky work but the camaraderie of the other volunteers makes the whole adventure a great deal of fun. The habitats are old and simple and very small – many of the animals live in tiny cages and sit on cement floors. The volunteers are extremely important as we are the ones that thoroughly clean the cages, and make and hide the enrichment and food. I am glad I came and am looking forward to the coming weeks.”

A sun bear enjoys its new life in Borneo after being rescued“Our general day to day regime was to clean the enclosures, hide food around their enclosures to act as enrichment for the animals and improve the centre and its facilities. The whole island had been on a drought so cleaning and working became much harder. I canʼt really say I had
any single highlight of the trip because the whole experience was just amazing. The whole trip was just a unique experience which I would definitely do again.”

An orangutan that has been cared for by Oyster Worldwide volunteers“The experience was amazing. Nikki and Dom who worked with us we really great, knowledgeable and supportive. Overall the support from Oyster was great especially as I booked very last minuet and then had problems getting things from the kit list. Anne my representative was extremely helpful and always replied quickly. I had a wonderful time and made some fantastic memories, I’ll definitely be looking too volunteer again next summer.”
