The Coast of North SulawesiBitung, North SulawesiID
Volunteers at our Wildlife Rescue project located on the coast of North Sulawesi in Indonesia will help assist with wild animals saved from the illegal wildlife trade in the region. Animals from all over the vast Indonesian archipelago have suffered the trade route through Sulawesi, which is a claimed hotspot for traffickers. The Rescue Centre helps the authorities tackle this crime and take care of the wildlife confiscated from this trade. As a volunteer, you would help feeding the animals, provide browsing from various vegetation to the animals, and making enrichment for the animals to be stimulated, and finding methods to address concerns about the captive wildlife’s welfare.
