Here at The Great Projects, we believe that there is a better way to holiday – and if you’re looking for an incredible wildlife experience, adventure awaits in the far reaches of Indonesian Borneo. Here, you could help to make a difference to the lives of endangered orangutans by volunteering at one of the world’s leading orangutan rehabilitation centres.

We’re proud to work with a range of exceptional wildlife organisations, such as the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOSF). As the founders of this fantastic project, BOSF have helped thousands of volunteers to create unforgettable memories from within the midst of the rainforest, and you, too, could soon find yourself immersed in a meaningful volunteer experience at Samboja Lestari. From encouraging the orangutans’ natural instincts through the creation of enrichment items, to observing these remarkable apes as they progress through their rehabilitation, this is your opportunity to join a phenomenal team in their mission to rescue and release one of the world’s most charming yet at-risk species.

Think you’re ready to experience jungle life? Join one of our most beloved volunteer projects getting in touch today!
