“I've been volunteering for nine years now and in that time I have met hundreds of people who otherwise may not have been exposed to the plight of the orangutans. To help educate the community to understand that these animals are on the brink of extinction and that every one of us can do something to help, brings a lot of fulfilment in my life. It doesn't take much time or effort to help.”

Courtney, Brisbane Volunteer
