Wildlife Volunteer Thailand

Volunteer with rescued wildlife in Thailand

We cannot wait to welcome you! Book now and help our 800 rescued animals.

We are always in need of volunteer support to ensure we give our animals the best care and a better future, whether this is by returning them to the wild or a lifetime of care.

The majority of our work is funded through our volunteer scheme, so we are always glad for the support. We currently run four projects: the Wildlife Rescue Centre (WRC), the Elephant Refuge (ER), the Wildlife Hospital (HOSP) and our PAT (People and Animals Thailand) Clinic - a spay clinic for stray dogs and cats (PAT). Thee of the projects are run from one location in rural Thailand, about 160km southwest of Bangkok. Our PAT Clinic is about 30 mins from the WFFT sanctuary.  This means you can combine volunteering projects and help in many different ways.

We value long-term commitment, so the longer you stay, the cheaper it becomes. Please follow the links below to learn more about Wildlife Volunteer projects and how you can help.

WRC have over 600 animals that we need your help to look after. As a WRC volunteer you will help look after more than 10 species of primates including gibbons, macaques and orangutans; bears, otters, civets, reptiles, birds and many more.

As an Elephant Refuge volunteer, you will help feed our 20+ Asian elephants, clean their enclosures, create enrichments, harvest banana trees and grasses and a variety of other maintenance work around the centre. We are proud to be Asia's first chain-free sanctuary.
