Orang-Utan Conservation Project in Sepilok Rehabilitation Center in Borneo,
Malaysia
         

The best thing about the placement was simply watching the orang-utans interacting with each other, it was so special.  They are so human like and their behaviour is so similar to ours! 

I also really enjoyed the paediatric work as you always had something to be getting on with and it was the best feeling feeding the babies and then taking them down to the lake.

I feel I have acquired a lot of experience from this placement, especially working with people who do not speak English. I have learnt how to communicate with people better and managed to work as part of a team. It is really character building and helps you to appreciate what you have.

I would definitely recommend this placement to other people. This is such a mind broadening experience and you learn so much about the local culture and also the dangers and issues that are currently going on with the Orang-utans.
