Volunteering Choices

All our volunteer opportunities are with established local conservation projects that have generated visible impact for the communities in which they are based.

Being a volunteer for Malaysian Wildlife is definitely a fifty/fifty relationship: you will gain amazing experience, valuable skills and plenty of fun and satisfaction, but you will be expected to make a concrete contribution, follow the rules and respect the local culture.

Take your pick from these amazing projects and don’t underestimate the difference you can make!
