About Program

The LCTW is the first and only wildlife rescue, conservation, and education centre in Lao PDR. Lao PDR is sadly a hotspot for the illegal wildlife trade in South East Asia, due to this and the scale of our project, all volunteers at LCTW make a direct impact to the wildlife here in Laos.

We currently care for a huge variety of species numbering just under 500 animals such as macaques, gibbons, crocodiles, slow loris, bears, leopard cats, deer, civets, jackals, binturongs, and many others. Many of these have a high conservation value which we are actively working with.

Volunteers work in supervised teams to feed, water and clean up after our wildlife, take part in our daily enrichment schedule where they can observe natural behaviours brought on by their work, as well as building new enclosures for animals, renovating old enclosures, and general maintenance around the centre.

Awesome experience

This volunteer programme is excellent, I had the best time here. The volunteer co-ordinators are super friendly and you feel very at home straight away. The accommodation is really cute and it's amazing to listen to the Jackals at night and the Gibbons when you wake up in the morning. During the day you will be helping clean quarantine enclosures, creating enrichments for the animals and helping build new enclosures and renovate old ones. You can directly see how you are improving the lives of animals at the centre. Watching the bears enjoy fruit ice lollies which you have made them is amazing, it's such a satisfying feeling to see the animals enjoying life. The Vet's on site are awesome too, and are always happy to explain which animals they are treating currently and why if you are interested in the medical side of things. All the staff are so passionate and really care about the mission here. The centre is located in a rural town of Laos, you get to experience what life in Laos is really like, meet the locals and enjoy the easy-going lifestyle. You won't be disappointed.
