Long-term Support - Program Partnership
For modern zoos from all over the world, which are interested in a given species or illegal markets, this offers one of the opportunities to participate in this program. This way we can jointly contribute to a unified breeding and conservation strategy of modern zoos, whose philosophy is not only species protection ex situ, but especially in situ, i.e. in the area of the natural occurrence of protected species.

Helpers of ecological education and awareness
Active from 2021
We are looking for two volunteers (a couple is an advantage) who will regularly help with the ecological education of children. This education assistance will take place primarily in the three target communities in the villages of Bandar Baru, Kuta Male, and Basukum. Our Indonesian teachers and assistants in these villages teach ecology lessons and English. Volunteers will assist them in their work and try to improve their pedagogical skills. Part of the work will also be an analysis of the current state, streamlining teaching, and curriculum. It will also include help with the environmental libraries we have built in these communities, as well as help with awareness campaigns. Volunteers should have experience with education, they should be independent and systematic (a pedagogical course is a great advantage). For volunteers, their own accommodation will be provided in the village.

We are looking for an expert to expand biodiversity in the area of the rescue and rehabilitation centre in Sumatra (biological education is an advantage). Our rescue and rehabilitation centre is 2.5 hectares large and is located at the foot of the mountains that are part of the Leuser Ecosystem and near the Sibayak Volcano. It is a natural place with lots of trees, more greenery, and also a system of artificial and natural ponds and marshes. The centre has a relatively large diversity of animal and plant species. We expand and support this diversity in various ways such as the creation of biodiversity ponds, water retention in the landscape, partial mowing of grass, leaving dead wood in the area, etc. We would like to professionalize these activities in our area as much as possible and also have an overview of species that also thanks to these activities live in our centre.
Active from 2021
We are looking for a cameraman/film editor (he/she may be an amateur) who would work in Sumatra for some time and record the activities of the project. The cameraman must have his own camera or SLR. A GoPro, a Rode VideoMic Rycote microphone and a tripod are available in the centre. In addition to filming, the cameraman can help with other activities of our program, which are mentioned above.
