Clou

Be part of a team that takes care of rescued wildlife, some of which are on the brink of extinction. Level of experience and knowledge demonstrated will determine how hands on your externship will be.
Around 400 animals across 59 different species means a varied case load, externs will have the opportunity to see how different procedures are performed on different species.
We only accept 2 veterinary externs/vet technicians/vet nurses at any one time, this means you have plenty of opportunity to learn from our experienced vet team.
Experience high standards of vet care in a wildlife rescue center with a well educated team.
Our volunteer bungalows, with hammocks, are perfect for relaxing after a hard day's work or on your day off and, waking up to the gibbons singing never gets old.
Are you a vet nurse/technician graduate or student and are looking to gain more experience in wildlife medicine? Join our vet team and gain vital wildlife experience. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Âge 18+
Seul voyageur
Couples
50+

This program was designed to give vet nurse/technician students and graduates the relevant experience needed to work with wildlife in the future. Your voluntary work isn't just a learning experience, you will be part of team that is really trying to make a difference. 

You will be asked to support our vet staff with a wide variety of tasks from pathology, geriatric care, trauma surgery, routine checkups to intake of new animals that were rescued from the illegal wildlife trade. You won't just receive instructions and tasks, the idea of this program is for you to shadow our vet team and learn how to treat wildlife correctly. We want to help you become great wildlife vet nurses/technicians and our vet team is more than willing to answer your questions along the way. Vet volunteers will also be encouraged to pursue research/personal projects around the centre, this is a unique opportunity to gain experience in different aspects of veterinary care and expand on your skill set. 

At Lao Conservation Trust for Wildlife we maintain high standards of husbandry and vet care, through a well educated and experienced team of wildlife professionals. This is a unique opportunity to follow our vet team through all aspects of their work, externs who show competency and good knowledge of cases and species could be given the chance for extra responsibilities. Some extra responsibilities could include: assisting in surgery, animal intake/discharge, pathology/lab work, routine check ups/exams, wildlife dentals, administering medicine and much more.

Journée Typique

It is important to remember that working with wildlife can keep you on your toes. Our routine is subject to change at a moments notice and we appreciate our volunteers understanding with these abrupt changes in our daily schedule!

At any time we can receive a large confiscation of wildlife from the illegal wildlife trade, often animals confiscated have injuries from being captured/transported by poachers and require urgent medical care. Our vet team are kept busy caring for around 400 animals that are based at our wildlife sanctuary. 

A typical day for our vet team and their externs/volunteers goes like this:

  • AM medications will be administered to patients across the centre.
  • Vet externs will be asked to assist with husbandry duties should the clinic have any animals in recovery at the wildlife hospital.
  • Preparation of medications for the afternoon and the following day.
  • Daily rounds of the centre to monitor animals and recovery of former patients.
  • Emergency/planned procedures.
  • Necropsies.
  • Preparation of surgical equipment. 
And much more...

Activités de Loisir

Close to our project there is a hotel pool which volunteers can use for $1.50, staff can drive you to/from the hotel. 

In our village we have markets with food, basic clothing and amenities. 

We are situated close to Phou Khao Khouay national protected area, access is quite difficult without your own transport but it is possible to walk to the lower foothills after a short taxi ride. 

Vientiane (the capital city) can be accessed by regular public transport from our village, in the capital you can visit various cultural and tourism sites. There are many bars and restaurants with western/local food and drink located in Vientiane.

Lao PDR is a fast developing nation, but travel around the country can be slow, but it is certainly worth the effort. Those who enjoy swimming, hiking and climbing in the outdoors will love spending time in Lao PDR!

Services inclus

Services de LCTW (Wildlife Rescue Center)
The cost of coming to volunteer helps us to continue our work fighting the illegal wildlife trade. After we cover the costs of transport, accommodation and food for the duration of your stay the remainder of your donation supports our work:
  • Rescues and releases - Our team travels all over Lao PDR in order to rescue and release animals, we must be ready to go at a moment's notice. 
  • Investment in conservation and education - rescuing animals will not put an end to the illegal wildlife trade, we must campaign for change through education and workshops.
  • Enclosure construction - We have worked hard to give our animals the space they need but there is much more work to be done, the money helps us buy materials and pay the local staff.
  • Feeding the animals - We have a lot of mouths to feed, with almost 400 animals across 59 different species including: crocodiles, bears, primates, turtles and an elephant. 
  • Animal healthcare - Our vet clinic relies on your donation for supplies and equipment needed for everything from medications to wounds. Animals can come to us in poor health and we must be ready to help them.
  • Renovation & Enrichment - The constant improvement of our center means buying new material for enrichment, we use recycled materials where possible, but our resources don't last forever. 
  • Staff support - We currently employ over 60 Lao people and are the biggest employer in the area, with 7 expats on site we strive to continue our education and training to international standards.
