    Tasikoki Wildlife Rescue

    Special skills: None required, just enthusiasm for animal welfare and reasonable physical fitness to work in a tropical climate. Veterinarians and vet nurses are welcome to support this project
    Details: Tasikoki rescue centre was set-up in 2001 to tackle the hub of illegal trade in Indonesian wildlife being smuggled through Sulawesi on its way to the Philippines and then on to the global market. Sadly many of the confiscated animals have nowhere safe to be released and must remain in care at the rescue centre until better protection of Indonesia’s forests can be established.

    There are several Orangutan programs but they tend to require both larger financial and time commitments.

    I recently volunteered with children with disabilities and teaching english to children aged 10-16 years old near Ubud.
    The non-profit learning has wonderful projects (like arts and craft, sport, dancing, computers,music) for the underprivileged children and volunteers accommodation is located onsite at a home stay.

    Great experience
