The wildlife sanctuary where you'll spend a week spans one million acres and is home to several endangered species including tigers, elephants, banteng, deer, sarus crane, crocodiles and several turtle species. Once densely forested and rich in biodiversity, this area has been terribly affected by illegal logging and poaching. You will volunteer to help efforts to reforest the area by keeping records of identified species, collecting seeds and planting samplings. You'll also have the opportunity to help care for injured and orphaned animals who have been rescued so that they can be rehabilitated and returned to their jungle home.
When you're in Battambang, you'll volunteer on projects aimed at improving education quality in the area, with a specific focus on environment and sustainability. You will deliver a range of workshops that will help provide the community the knowledge they need to better care for their environment. You’ll also volunteer on a renovation project at the local school to help create a safer and more inspiring learning environment for the children.
Overall it was an incredibly rewarding experience and it made me realise how much I want to do more similar jobs in the future. I absolutely loved being able to travel but also to work with the community and children, giving meaningful advice and helping to make a difference.Volunteer - Tegan - Cambodia
This really was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I’ve had never done anything like this before and I’m so glad I done it. I enjoyed getting out of my comfort zone and experiencing new things and the culture and history of Cambodia. Would definitely do something like this againVolunteer - Katie - Cambodia
