The project is at the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation centre (BSBCC) where you will need to get down and dirty taking care of the smallest bears in the world, working to clean their dens and creating environmental and food enrichment. In addition to enriching the sun bears living conditions, you will learn about sun bears in the different stages of rehabilitation and the process of releasing them back into the wild. Working alongside local people will enable you to experience and understand the Malaysian culture. There is some time off during the placement to explore the beautiful surroundings of Sepilok and nearby towns and wildlife sanctuaries.
Anyone over the age of 18 can be part of this project which can be a life changing experience. Please note that there is no direct contact with the animals.
