1 Week Volunteer Program

Have an opportunity to gain first-hand experience with chimpanzee behavior at Ngamba Island, contribute to the welfare of these individuals, as well as to the conservation of their wild relatives.

By participating in this programme, you will join a dedicated team devoted to the ongoing health and welfare of Ngamba Island’s resident wildlife and in turn, help us achieve our mission to educate the public about the importance of chimpanzees… our closest living relatives.

There is so much you can get involved in: from cleaning cages to preparing food, assisting in medical procedures, carrying out enrichment, typing chimp diaries, selling in the Island Shop, collecting observational/behavioral data, helping in construction/maintenance of island facilities…. to simply relaxing, reading, bird watching, chimp watching, or waiting for the 50,000 fruit bats to fly overhead in the evening on their nightly forage.
