Thailand Wildlife Rescue Centre Volunteer
Volunteer in Thailand by volunteering in the Thailand Wildlife Rescue Centre Volunteer project! This Thailand wildlife rescue centre conservation volunteering project located in Thailand, is dedicated to rescue and rehabilitate wild animals previously exploited as pets or used for profit in the tourism industry. The wildlife rescue centre is sheltering a wide variety of wild animals which includes gibbons, macaques, civets, loris, leopards, tigers, bears, crocodiles, exotic birds and many more. The aim of this Thailand animal rescue centre is to provide the wild animals with living conditions as close to their natural habitat. This is to rehabilitate the animals and hopefully be ready to return to their natural wild habitat some day. The rescue centre is constantly looking for skilled and unskilled animal lovers volunteers to assist in the form of volunteer work, donations or professional help such as veterinary experience. This wildlife conservation volunteering programme is a good way to have a view of how a wildlife centre operate as well as meeting other people who are as passionate as you when it comes to saving wildlife. It is also another of to view Thailand from a conservation point of view. If you love working with animals and have a good level of fitness, come volunteer in Thailand with us and the animals!

This experience has been one of the most rewarding, exhilirating and exhausting experiences that I have had in a long time. I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to gain a chance to work with gibbons, macaques, bears and even a sea otter! I wish you all the best of luck and hope in the near future I’ll have the blessed chance to return. This opportunity has opened my eyes and made me much more aware of helping animals as well as giving kudos to those who have ‘rebuilt’ these animals lives for the better.

I can’t believe I’m already leaving, 3 months have gone by so fast. I’m very grateful that I have had the opportunity to come here are work with all these lovely animals for the past three months. It makes me very happy to see that there are still so many people that care about animals and nature and to see that all the animals here are being treated so well. I’m going to miss them all!
Louise Simeon (Belgium) –March 2010
When I first found out about WFFT all the reviews said 2 weeks was not enough here. After my 2 week stay, all I can say as well is 2 weeks is not enough! The staff and volunteers made this a great place to be whilst doing something very worthwhile. I hope the Centre continues to grow and rescue many more animals so they can live happily. Thanks to everyone here, hopefully our paths will cross again!
Gareth Jones (UK) –June 2010
The community, friendship and dedication I’ve encountered here has been truly amazing. I’ve come to love animals I didn’t even know existed before and grown a deeper appreciation for the ones I did. I take home with me only good experiences and memories, even pool scrubs will be thought of fondly, or at least make me laugh!
