Indonesia is home to 100’s of different species of animals, many of which find themselves dispersed by deforestation while the country expands it’s exporting of goods like palm oil and rubber. There are seven centres in the whole of the country that rehabilitate and release endangered animals into their native habitat in the wild. Plan My Gap Year provides great insight and opportunity for volunteers to join in on the care of these animals at the Bali Wildlife Rescue Centre.

 About the Centre

Within the centre you will find a range of animals that were victims to poachers and traffickers. The primates and birds looked after have been rescued from markets, private homes and businesses where they were kept as pets or for entertainment purposes. There are currently over 40 endangered primates and birds including Javan Lutung, Southern Pig-tailed Macague, Grey-headed Fish Eagle, Southern Cassowary, Palm Cockatoo and more.

 

PMGY has created a programme that allows you to work to give endangered animals daily support and enrich their lives. The Programme Fee involved helps provide upkeep and care for these beautiful creatures!

 

Please note that the European summer period is our peak time in Bali (June-August). As a consequence, volunteers may be allocated to alternative placements during their time on the programme.

Giornata tipica

While on the project you will work alongside the animal keeper and other staff members who have years of experience interacting with animals. The activities you will get involved in during your time on the project include:

FEEDING – These animals are fed based on the species and time of year. Animals like the crocodiles are fed two times a week with things such as chicken or duck while monkeys are fed daily with fruits. You will be able to cut and prepare meals based on the species you are working with and learn about the types of food that are best.

ENRICHMENT – Many of these animals are endangered and have come from the loss of their native habitat or poor treatment in the black market. Their displacement often leaves these animals irritable and at times depressed causing for them to have poor eating habits or behaviour. Your time interacting with them and coaching them on things such as eating or interacting with other animals is imperative! Over time these animals may just learn to trust you and in turn you could find one of those pretty Parakeets on your forearm.

ENCLOSURE CLEANING – These enclosures are made for each animal based on the feedback of the veterinarian during the first assessment. You may find the enclosures to be small, but some animals being irritable find it more comfortable to be in smaller spaces and over time the enclosures will be expanded and eventually they will be released back into the wild. The crocodiles tend to need the brush cleared back to keep them from being confined to one area so an example of this upkeep would be while the staff keep the crocodile occupied you are able to cut the brush back. In the bird enclosures the branches and chains may need to be replaced and cleaned as they begin to rot, if you are comfortable they will let you clean and make repairs in the enclosure with these beauties flying all around you!

MAINTENANCE – The centre is a great place, but with limited funding it could do with some tender loving care! Volunteers will be asked to help with creating a better atmosphere for the animals by clearing up the grounds. While you are doing a bit of upkeep this will include fixing the hinges on enclosure doors, relining the fencing, adding new gating on the enclosure, repairing the habit and or cleaning the grounds of rubbish and weeds.

All that is required of volunteers is to be fit enough to participate in tropical climates, ability to handle animals and interact with the centre’s staff.

In addition to our volunteers’ work at the Bali Wildlife Conservation Centre, our participants are likely to get involved in several of our other wildlife and conservation projects.

PROJECT EXAMPLE – BEACH CLEANS

Did you know a plastic straw takes one minute to manufacture, will be used for ten, before being disregarded and taking hundreds of years to decompose? Millions of plastic straws are found on the beaches of Bali every year and they are just one of the many items that are littered and washed ashore on this island every single day.

Plastic pollution is becoming a big problem in Bali and PMGY Bali wants to do her part to fight the battle against plastic pollution. Our team promotes this by hosting regular beach cleans with our volunteers and the local community. Every day, our volunteers visit local beaches to collect disregarded items, before correctly disposing and recycling these. We also work with the local community to create an even bigger impact by educating them about environmental conservation and recycling.

Attività del tempo libero

PMGY’s volunteer in Bali programs are based in the centre of Tabanan, a picturesque but lively traditional city.

The Tabanan region itself has a population of over 350,000 and 10,000 of this is concentrated in the city centre. From 4pm to midnight runs an exciting night market where local cuisines can be tasted and traditional clothing and jewellery bought. Tabanan is referred to as the ‘rice bowl of Bali’ for its infamous rice fields and agriculture industry that underpins much of Bali’s rice production. The Subak Museum is dedicated to the famed Subak system of unmechanised irrigation which has been in use in Bali since AD 600.

Participants generally volunteer on a Monday-Thursday basis and the weekends are free to relax or travel further afield. As our volunteers will testify, the wider travel opportunities are extremely important to the whole experience and it is something we certainly recommend. Our local team are able to arrange activities, transport and accommodation but please note this is usually an independent experience outside of the core program.

  • Private Transport To Project
  • 24 Hour Support

Prelievo dall'aeroporto a Ngurah Rai International Airport

You should arrive into Ngurah Rai International Airport (airport code DPS) on the relevant Sunday start date. The airport pickup is available 24 hours. 

On arrival a member of our local team will be at the waiting area for you holding a sign with your name on it. They will drive you straight to the Volunteer House in Tabanan where you can relax and settle 

Alloggio

During your time with PMGY you will live in our Volunteer House which is just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Tabanan. Here you will find local restaurants, convenience stores and ATMs. You’ll be living with other PMGY volunteers from around the world, so you’ll make plenty of friends along the way.

 

  • The accommodation is basic but comfortable with free Wi-Fi. 
  • Each room has bunk beds with up to 8 people per room in same-sex rooms. 
  • Volunteers are provided with air conditioning in the room and their own mosquito net and bed linen. 
  • Bathrooms are shared, have a shower and western style toilet. 
  • The water is cold but this shouldn’t be a problem as Bali is hot and humid all year-round!

 

We encourage you to bring some small padlocks and/or store any valuables within the lockers provided within the volunteer accommodation There will also be fridge space available for volunteers to store any items they need to keep chilled.

 

The Volunteer House is located right next to where our local team live. Although volunteers have their own private space there is still the security of living next to our host family who can assist you if need be. It is also a great way to learn more about Balinese culture and practise your new-found language skills!

 

Some of our projects are within walking distance of our Volunteer House and some are not. PMGY will take you to and from the projects, not within walking distance, each day via Bemo or private car and the cost of this service is included in your Programme Fee.

 

During our busiest months (June to September) you may be placed at alternative accommodation. This could be a nearby guesthouse or one of our summer Volunteer Houses.

Cibo e Bevande

You will be provided with three freshly prepared meals per day. Most meals are traditional Indonesian dishes that can be typically quite spicy. Balinese cuisine consists of a lot of rice and the meat is mainly fish or chicken – vegetarian options are always available.

 

There is a large choice of restaurants and local warungs (authentic, local food stalls) in Tabanan. The food on offer is traditional Balinese cuisine – typically amazing and mainly vegetarian! There may also be a western option served once or twice every week and there are restaurants serving western food available around a 20 minute walk from the Volunteer House.

Incontra il tuo ospite

Plan My Gap Year is an award-winning international volunteer placement organisation based in the UK. We provide safe, affordable, need-driven volunteer programmes from 1 to 24 weeks in 11 countries worldwide.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US…

Founded by volunteers for volunteers, Plan My Gap Year works with local communities in the developing world towards long-term sustainable goals. We know there is no better way to travel and make a positive impact on the world.

We work extremely hard to ensure that our opportunities are affordable for everyone who wants to make a difference. So fees are 100% transparent, something our volunteers really appreciate.

Plan My Gap Year structured programmes create the perfect platform for you to see the world, meet like-minded people and engage in meaningful volunteer work. We have teams in the UK and in our host destinations who will support you 24/7 throughout your time with us. Furthermore, every project on our network is regularly risk-assessed by our UK team to ensure our set up is safe and that our volunteers are making a positive impact.

There is also a great social element to our programmes. Plan My Gap Year puts you in touch with all your fellow volunteers via Facebook before you set off. Our projects receive volunteers from around the world throughout the year, so even if you’re travelling solo, you’re going to meet heaps of people along the way. Plus you’ll have plenty of opportunity to travel the country with your newfound travel buddies – it’s all part of the PMGY experience!

So if you’re thinking of doing something a bit different on your next trip abroad, then why not drop us a line and find out what extraordinary things you could be doing.

AFFORDABLE & TRANSPARENT FEES

Our aim is to make our programmes accessible to motivated travellers irrespective of their financial capacity. Plan My Gap Year focuses on providing the core requirements of a volunteer programme: safety, structure and sustainability.

We are 100% transparent with our fees. That way you know exactly how much of your money goes towards the local community.

Compared to the large majority of volunteer organisations out there, even most charities and not-for-profits, PMGY’s opportunities are significantly cheaper. Furthermore, as our reviews will testify, our support service and structured programmes are second to none.

SAFETY & RISK MANAGEMENT

Your safety is our top priority. All of Plan My Gap Years' programmes have been personally inspected and vetted by the PMGY team – which is not an industry standard by any means. We carry out independent risk assessments on an annual basis and our local teams constantly review the safety precautions we implement. This includes regular staff and safety appraisals.

 Our local teams are made up of highly experienced volunteer coordinators. They have hosted international volunteers for many years and are prepared to react in the unlikely event of an emergency. Whatever the problem, big or small, our local teams are available around the clock.

As part of our commitment to your safety, we keep in constant communication with local embassies and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office to ensure we can identify potentially dangerous situations and act upon them immediately. Our UK team are available 24/7 to assist volunteers and their families.

TRAINING & SUPPORT

We support our volunteers every step of the way. Before you go we will provide you with a detailed Volunteer Handbook, which will guide you through how to prepare for your trip. This Handbook contains literally everything you need to know – from what to pack, to how to obtain a visa, to local language guides.

Our experienced UK team are always available to provide assistance. Plan My Gap Year is always available to answer our questions and support you in anyway we can. 

On arrival, a member of our in-country team will collect you from the airport and help you settle in. Your orientation course will teach you everything you need to know about the country, how to stay safe and what to expect from your upcoming volunteer experience. 

Our local team are on-call 24/7. Whether you’ve lost your passport or just want some help in planning a weekend trip, our friendly in-country coordinators provide that safety net to ensure you are well looked after.

RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL

Plan My Gap Years' responsibility is not limited to our travellers but also the projects we support. That is why all our volunteers must provide a Criminal Background Check before they travel.

It is essential that our projects are need-driven and sustainable. We work closely with our local partners to ensure that our volunteers are contributing to bring about long-term development.

PERSONAL TOUCH

We really know our programmes. Our UK team have stayed in the accommodation, volunteered at the projects and met the volunteers. We carefully assess each application we receive so that your personality and skills are suited to the project. Whatever your query, you can feel assured that you will be speaking to someone who can tell you exactly what to expect.

HAVING FUN

One of the best aspects of volunteering is meeting some amazing like-minded people. We place over 2,000 volunteers every year so wherever and whenever you go, you have the peace of mind in knowing you will be living and working alongside other PMGY volunteers. In many of our destinations, we run our own Volunteer House accommodation, which ensures all volunteers live together, and therefore guaranteeing a strong social element. In addition, our local team are always there to help you plan any independent travel or give you some tips for what to do at the weekend.
