Ape Action Africa offers volunteers one to three months of work caring for the animals in Cameroon’s Mefou Primate Sanctuary. All volunteers live and work at the forest site (home to 100 chimps, 20 gorillas and a variety of monkeys).

The world will be hard but rewarding. You should bone up on basic French, as most of the staff speaks only French! You’ll live in rooms shared with other volunteers and eat a vegetarian diet.
