WRC is not only home to several orangutans but an array of Indonesian wildlife that have been rescued from the Illegal Pet Trade: sun bears, eagles, gibbons, monkeys, parrots, crocodiles and leopard cats. When you sign up to be a volunteer with WRC you will be able to work closely with the animal keepers with daily cleaning and feeding procedures, experiencing up-close and personal interactions with all the animals and try new foods you probably never knew existed.

The Daily Routine

Volunteers will typically start work with the animal keepers at 7:15am beginning with cage cleaning duties. Snacks are provided at 10am for a break time. The first daily feeding is after morning break. At 12pm you will be provided with a traditional Indonesian lunch followed by daily animal enrichment activities at 1pm. This includes making food / cage activities for the animals. The second daily feeding is at 2pm and the day will finish at 3pm Monday to Friday with Saturday and Sunday as rest or excursion days. There's many places to visit and hiring a car for the day is easy.
