About the Program

OGVO is asking for volunteers to assist with a unique opportunity to work in animal care and wildlife and environmental conservation projects. Conservation Project volunteers will have the option to work on a wide range of initiatives including Mole National Park, zoo work in Kumasi, monkey sanctuary work at Boabeng Fiema, and other options. This is a great volunteer option for all people who are interested in animals and want to make a difference in environmental conservation.

Volunteer Duties in Kumasi Zoo

The Kumasi Zoo is home to a variety of birds and other endangered species of animals that are indigenous to Africa. Accra Zoo shifted to Kumasi in September 2006 because of the presidential palace construction. Volunteer daily duties include:

  • Cleaning areas
  • Feeding the animals
  • Moving the animals from one area to another
  • Taking care of sick animals as well as any other duties that will be assigned to you by the officials

Volunteer Duties at Boabeng Fiema Monkey Sanctuary

Boabeng Fiema Monkey Sanctuary is about 22km north of Nkoranza and hosts a lot of families of Mona Monkeys. There are around 600 in the entire sanctuary and are brown. We also have around 250 Geoffrey's Pied Columbus Monkeys which are black and white. Traditional and local beliefs prohibit physical harm to monkey. This sanctuary is the only area in the region where people can see these species in large numbers. We also have a wide range of butterflies, birds, and many species of trees. Volunteers will be daily responsible for: administrative duties, leading tours, teaching visitors about monkeys and the flora and fauna of the surrounding area.

We are looking for volunteers who are hardworking, environmentally conscious, adaptable and open-minded about new cultures, and, of course, passionate.

Volunteer duties can shift daily, so volunteers must be flexible.

Volunteers who are interested in conducting research at the monkey sanctuary will need pay USD $100 for an amount of time ranging from 1 day to 6 months.

Researches and volunteers are expected to teach during their time at the sanctuary.
