The Borneo Orangutan Conservation Volunteer Project has for the past two decades been working in threatened ecosystems, including the Sebangau forest which is home to the largest population of orangutans in lowland Borneo. Through research, education and restoration efforts, they have created a successful conservation site for wildlife to roam.

Volunteers actively contribute on conservation efforts made to keep these animals protected for future generations.
