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.

About Laos Conservation Trust for Wildlife

Location:

Laos Conservation Trust for Wildlife, Ban Keun, Thoulakhom District, Vientiane Province Vientiane, LA

Mission Statement

To assist the Lao government in combatting the illegal wildlife trade. We rescue, rehabilitate and release as much wildlife as possible, as well as being involved in worldwide conservation projects. We will continue to provide education to the people of Laos to encourage them to want to conserve their natural biodiversity.

Description

The original project here was established as a rescue centre and an animal welfare project at the Lao Zoo in 2015. Due to the success, interest and need for this project, the LCTW was born as a registered non-profit foundation in Laos in 2018. We now strive forward and have become the only Laos registered foundation for not only wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release, but now also conservation and education.

We work with the Lao authorities and individuals who need our help, to rescue, rehabilitate and release as much wildlife as possible, most coming from the illegal wildlife trade. Those that are sadly unsuited for release will be cared for in our Wildlife Sanctuary with a combination of a high standard of animal welfare, the best formulated diets in South-east Asia and access to full time veterinary care from our on site Vet team. Also integrated into our Wildlife Sanctuary are residents of the Lao Zoo which we have been working with since 2015 to increase the animal welfare standards and provide 24/7 medical care.

We have many volunteer programmes that assist us in our important conservation work such as our Husbandry and Enrichment Programme, Vet and Vet Nurse Programme, and Animal-based Studies Programme. Come get your hands dirty with us!
