Project Review

The Global Volunteer Network has opportunities available to work with wild animals through our partner organization in Thailand. Most of the animals residing at the sanctuary were maltreated before they arrived here, suffering from abuse, malnutrition, neglect and improper care, rescued from the illegal pet trade, or have previously been exploited for the tourism industry. Many of the animals arrive with permanent disabilities and hence, cannot be returned to the wild. The centre's mission is to give these animals the best quality of life possible in captivity.

Skills/ Qualifications

Skills & Qualification: Volunteers in this project need to be flexible understanding and hardworking. Open-mindedness and patience will go a long way toward ensuring an enjoyable volunteer experience.

Arrangements for Room/Food

Food: Lunch and dinner is prepared by a Thai cook. She provides mainly Thai food, and although Thai food is usually spicy the cook knows how to please everybody’s taste. For vegetarians special arrangements can be made.

Accommodation: Accommodation is in simple bungalows at the center, with rooms for one to three people. Most rooms have their own European style toilet (non-flush) and cold water shower. There is a large communal volunteer house with seating and a large kitchen. You must have a positive attitude towards working and living in a group and take on the responsibilities that this holds. Your stay at the center will be rather primitive. Volunteers are expected to help with housekeeping duties and to keep the communal living areas clean at all times.

Any Missing Important Information

The in-country fee covers administrative charge, placement arrangement, accommodation, the running costs of the Thailand program, food, laundry and supervision. (This fee is paid to us 8 weeks before you leave for Thailand). The other costs you will need to meet are your flights, transport to placement 2200 Baht (around US $55.00), visa, shots, travel insurance, and corresponding airport departure taxes.
