Do you love the rainforest and want to gain conservation and leadership skills?
Join us at our Merapoh Rainforest Station, on the borders of Malaysia’s Taman Negara (National Park) as a Rainforest Volunteer Co-ordinator. The conservation work is focused on anti-poaching patrols to protect tigers, elephants, sun bears, tapirs and other threatened species.
