The Wildlife Rescue Centre rescues captive wild animals and rehabilitates them as far as is feasible thus allowing them to live the rest of their lives in a safe environment, as close to nature as possible and providing them with the best possible care.
The Wildlife Rescue Centre has a variety of macaques (5 species), 2 species of gibbon, several species of civets, Ioris, small and big cats (leopard cats, tigers), bears, crocodiles and exotic birds.
In the Wildlife Rescue Centre volunteers:
· prepare food for the animals and serve it to them

· work on buildings and upgrading enclosures
Quotes by volunteers (courtesy Wildlife Rescue Centre):
· "This experience has been one of the most rewarding, exhilarating 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." (Elizabeth Chon (USA) – 1 Week Wildlife Volunteer, May 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!" (Charlotte Davies (Canada) – 6 Weeks Wildlife Volunteer, June 2010)
