Volunteer Help for BOS Projects

BOS offers volunteer opportunities both in Australia and overseas.

In Australia:

In Australia BOS is always looking for people with all sorts of skills to be involved in our committee work, fund raising activities, website maintenance, education, public relations and marketing. BOS is only as strong as the people who support it.

In Borneo:

Do you want to help Orangutans in Borneo? Dont mind getting sweaty during the day and enjoying a cold beer or a glass of wine at night while watching a borneo sunset?

BOS Australia runs two trips a year for the opportunity to participate in our enrichment and welfare program. Spend two weeks at Samboja Lestari with a BOS Australia representative and the local technicians working on the enrichment program for almost 300 Orangutans held in the sanctuary. The sanctuary also houses over 50 sunbears.

Samboja hosts its own eco lodge, where visitors are given a taste of the local food and you are also given the chance to visit some amazing local sights. Nothing like seeing a Proboscis Monkey at twilight. For further detail contact@orangutans.com.au

The Orangutan Tropical Peatland Project works to protect some of the most important areas of tropical rainforest in Borneo, including the peat swamps of Sabangau, home to the world's largest orangutan population. We monitor the behavioural ecology of the forest's flagship ape and cat species, carry out biodiversity and forestry research, and work with our local partners to develop conservation solutions.

They now have volunteer and intern opportunities available for 2016. Visit www.outrop.com for further information.
