The Laos Conservation Trust for Wildlife is the first wildlife rescue, conservation, and education center in Lao P.D.R. Our Wildlife Husbandry and Enrichment Program is directly involved in the rehabilitation of animals rescued from the illegal wildlife trade while also improving the welfare of the residents that cannot be released into the wild.

Our husbandry and enrichment volunteers work from 8am to 5pm, with one day off per week. Although we run with a daily "schedule", working in the tropics and with rescued animals means the seasons, weather and needs of the animals can change unexpectedly! As a volunteer you will have many daily tasks such as:

- preparing diets
- cleaning animal enclosures,
- feeding animals
- creating enrichments for various animals
- building new enclosures
- renovating old enclosures
- creating enrichment structures for all residents of our projects
- assisting will maintenance around our center

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 hands on work to provide care and enrichment to our animal residents.

Volunteers stay onsite and have the opportunity to see and observe the animal residents every day through their work at the Center. Bungalows nestled under the trees provide accommodation and volunteers can relax after a long day of helping our animal residents in their porch hammock. Meals are provided daily with simple breakfast made by volunteers with provided foods and lunch/dinner catered by a local Lao restaurant.

We pick up and drop off volunteers every Sunday to Vientiane for easy, convenient travel to our Center. We have 24/7 staff support and security so volunteers can feel safe and at home while staying with us. LCTW is located near a small village in Laos allowing volunteers to experience authentic Lao life and culture.

About Lao Conservation Trust for Wildlife


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

Mission Statement

We are the Lao Conservation Trust for Wildlife, a Lao registered nonprofit wildlife center operating in Lao PDR, a key corridor for the illegal wildlife trade in South-east Asia, as a gateway between Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Cambodia and China. Our mission is to eradicate the illegal wildlife trade and improve wildlife education and welfare in Laos. We rescue, rehabilitate and release as much wildlife as possible, as well as being involved in worldwide conservation projects. We are a multi-species rescue, conservation and education nonprofit; incredibly uniquely placed to address the crisis driving the rapid decline of many endangered species. We offer a 24/7 national wildlife rescue hotline and carry out rehabilitation work and advocacy efforts. With around 60 Lao staff, we are proud to be based in this beautiful and unique country.


Established in 1994 by a Lao-Thai family, the Lao Zoo was a popular attraction for locals and tourists alike. The zoo aimed to give people the opportunity to see and learn about Laos’ most striking species, whilst promoting their conservation and continued survival in the wild.

In 2012, the owners of the zoo started a major project to improve the existing facilities and grow the site into the country’s first ever multi-species wildlife conservation center, a shining beacon against the illegal wildlife trade in Laos. Following a period of collaboration with southeast Asian wildlife NGOs, the Lao Conservation Trust was formed, and registered as a non-profit organization in Laos.

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 unsuited for release are cared for in our Wildlife Sanctuary with full time veterinary care and dedicated local keepers.

Volunteers are critical toward achieving our mission and goals at LCTW. We have volunteer programs that assist us in our important conservation work such as our Husbandry and Enrichment Program and the Veterinary Program. Come get your hands dirty with us!
