Volunteers 2017

Our 2017 Volunteer Groups are now FULL. If you would like to express an interest for joining us in 2018, please email join@borneonature.org

Join us for 6 weeks as part of our learning and cultural exchange programme in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. This programme is primarily aimed at students of the biological and geographical sciences who wish to gain first-hand experience of a tropical peat-swamp forest environment.

Volunteers will learn about Borneo’s biodiversity, the importance of natural forests for local culture and communities, and peatland conservation, restoration and rehabilitation activities carried out by Indonesian scientists at the Center for International Cooperation in Sustainable Management of Tropical Peatland (CIMTROP), University of Palangka Raya. This experience also provides opportunities for cultural exchange, discovering Palangka Raya (Central Kalimantan’s capital) and language training.

All volunteers receive practical training in field survey skills and biodiversity monitoring from our enthusiastic field team. It’s a challenging, exciting and a rewarding experience with the chance to see some of the incredible wildlife that inhabits this special part of the world, like the charismatic orangutan.

There will be two groups in 2017 and both groups are now FULL:

Group 1: Tuesday 20 June – Monday 31 July
Group 2: Sunday 6 August – Saturday 16 September
