"Looking for a holiday that will become the experience of a lifetime? Why not come with me on an orangutan adventure, connect with the most intelligent fellow beings on the planet, meet the people working on the ground to save them, and help become part of the solution!" – Leif Cocks
In this specially crafted expedition you will visit the jungle habitat of the orangutan and help protect the environment for generations to come. Our destination for this trip are the jungles of Central & West Kalimantan (Borneo), to see the orangutan in its natural environment and also visit the IAR's orangutan rescue centre.
After visiting this wonderful animal's natural environment, we will head to West Borneo and visit the IAR centre in Ketapang. This, for many, is a highlight as you will come into close proximity with many young orangutans and garner a deeper understanding of their plight. If this visit doesn't move you nothing will! While there we will have the opportunity to see the work being done, hear from IAR Director, Karmele Sanchez about the latest news from the centre and also get involved with the enrichment programmes required for the orangutans located here.
Participants on this trip will raise a minimum of $1,000.00 AUD in fundraising which will go towards The Orangutan Project’s work for the endangered species.

A truly wonderful highlight that will not be forgotten and will only leave you wanting more!
With 6 orangutan volunteer opportunities, The Great Projects offer you the chance to work behind the scenes at a variety of different orangutan sanctuaries in Borneo and work directly with the staff to aid the rehabilitation and release of our closest relative. All of the projects, which run throughout the year, have been designed to assist in all parts or the rehabilitation and release process, and your work as a volunteer is essential in the overall goal of increasing numbers throughout Borneo. Including opportunities to go in search of orangutans in the wild, their projects really do offer a fantastic all round experience for anyone who has dreamed of spending time working with orangutans and helping to secure them a better future.
