About

The Laos Conservation Trust for Wildlife is the first and only wildlife rescue, conservation, and education centre in Lao P.D.R. Our Wildlife Husbandry and Enrichment Programme is directly involved in the rehabilitation of animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade while also assisting with our Lao Zoo project which aims to increase the animal welfare of the residents at the zoo.

As a volunteer you will have many daily tasks such as:

- cleaning animal enclosures, feeding animals, and creating daily enrichments for over 100 animals!

- building new enclosures for recently rescued animals

- renovating old enclosures for residents in our Wildlife Sanctuary and the Lao Zoo

- creating enrichment structures for all residents of our projects

- assisting will maintenance around our centre

Our volunteers can truly see the difference their work is making, and all volunteers who join our projects leave something behind! Due to the large scale of our project, all volunteers are directly involved in our rehabilitation processes and our fight against the illegal wildlife trade.

Volunteers at the LCTW are accommodated on-site in 2-person bungalows. 3 meals are provided a day for the volunteers; this is a mix of local and western food served in the centre's on site restaurant. Our kitchen staff is able to accommodate meat, vegetarian, or vegan diets.
