Volunteering for OFI is a fun and exciting way to get directly involved with our mission to save wild orangutans. OFI offers long term and short term volunteer positions at our facilities in Borneo, or you can help right from your home.
In Borneo, OFI hosts volunteer teams – each lasting 3 weeks – who help maintain OFI’s facilities in Central Kalimantan. OFI also needs specialized long-term volunteers to fill the positions of Field Correspondent and occasionally as Enrichment Volunteers to aid in duties at the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine in Central Kalimantan.
Many of OFI’s former field volunteers work from home and their contributions are invaluable. They contribute to “behind the scenes” projects such as writing for our website, helping to plan events and campaigns, and hosting fundraisers to benefit OFI.

Please note we are not currently recruiting for Long Term Volunteer positions.
The OFI Long Term Volunteer Program offers individuals a rare opportunity to travel abroad and witness firsthand the impact and realities of wildlife and habitat protection, by working at OFI’s Orangutan Care Center in Pasir Panjang, Kalimantan. The OFI Long Term Volunteer Program offers positions designed to increase OFI’s impact and to offer participants a unique insider experience.
A great volunteer opportunity for active individuals who want to get their hands dirty and help save the orangutan while working in one of the earth’s most bio-diverse areas. Each program lasts approximately 3 weeks. See the FAQ for this program here.
