Volunteering at the Orang-Utan & Sun Bear Conservation at Sepilok Rehabilitation Center in Borneo, Malaysia

         

I've got so many fantastic memories that I will cherish forever. I just hope one day to go back and see all of the staff and orang-utans. It would be brilliant to go and see Joey and Rosalinda (the two babies) in 5 or 6 years time to see how they are getting on.

I think that the work happening at the center is fantastic and it is so encouraging seeing people that genuinely care about the animals. The staff were all great and very welcoming. We couldn't have hoped for a better time.

Being in close contact with the orang-utans was just incredible and feeling that we were doing something good towards helping their cause was also vital to our enjoyment. I felt devastated having to leave, but I feel so grateful to have had such an amazing experience whilst hopefully at the same being of good use to the Center.

Thank you again for all your and the rest of the Travellers team have done in making a dream come true. I really did have an experience of a lifetime and if I could, I would go back tomorrow. It's bizarre to think it was a year ago that we were in Sepilok, but the memories are as vivid and special as ever.

The experience made me seriously think about taking up a course in Animal Care after I finish my Art and English degree. I had been searching to do something like the orang-utan project for years and had always come to a dead end - this completely made up for that - I only wish I was still there!!
