8 day Batang Ai Volunteer Programme with the Orang Utans

Diethelm Travel have created an eight day volunteer programme at the Batang Ai National Park, to enable participants to take part in the conservation works of the endangered flora and fauna.

Registration is open from now until October 31, 2017.

The programme will range from checking camera traps to maintenance of trails and infrastructure, as well as assisting local communities that live adjacent to the park who are vital first responders and informers in the conservation efforts of Batang Ai.

The unique twist of this volunteer programme is the planned trek to the areas where the wild Orang Utans and other protected wildlife live, being in their natural habitat.

At the end of the eight day programme, the volunteers will visit the Semenggoh Nature Reserve to gain awareness on the ongoing wildlife rehabilitation efforts of the Sarawak Forestry Corporation.
