Unforgettable experience at the wildlife conservation project for rescued animals in Vietnam! Get yourself involved in this exciting program we love so much!!! This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 17+

You will get the first hand experience working for this Great Animal Rescue and Conservation Project. The main objective of this conservation project is to spread awareness about these beautiful  animals, prevent them from going extinct, conserve their habitat, most importantly provide the animals an opportunity to reborn as real wild animals again living in a stress free habitat. You might have an opportunity to witness the relocation of animals an effort getting them a more conducive environment.

The focus of this project is for the conservation of a variety species of the beautiful primates, pangolin, civet cats, tortoise, fresh water turtle and other mammals conservation including: Enrichment, Husbandry, Planting, animal habitat area cleaning, Minor maintenance of the sanctuary is the norm of this project. 

A decent level of fitness is required to participate in this project. The work is sometimes physical. There is a working schedule and plan setup for each participant. Please take note that you are coming to an operational rescue and rehabilitation centre, we cannot predict what may happen each day, potential new animal arrivals under the centre’s care. Therefore, we ask the participants to be flexible and tolerant of potential delays or changes to the planned work as different projects may get reprioritized.

Patience is needed as you adjust to ‘Vietnam time’ – participants always come with huge amounts of enthusiasm and energy to plough into the project, which is a massive asset and positively impact on the sanctuary. You simply add a helpful and necessary piece to a much larger puzzle, and you should not expect the world of animal conservation to make great strides forward in the timeframe of your project. The Vietnamese approach to work is also vastly different from the Western mentality. Therefore please prepare to embrace the cultural difference.

Health-check requirements: Due to the similarities between human and our animal, they can carry diseases that can be transmitted to and from humans. health insurance and a various of vaccinations are required with the following: Vaccination for TB, Hep A & B, Tetanus and Rabies are compulsory. All these documents have to be presented or sent before you start volunteering.
