    About This Project

    Orang-utan is a Malay word that means person of the forest. Every year hundreds of people visit Malaysia and Indonesia to spend weeks or months working with these incredible great apes. But what kind of impact is this having on conservation and in what ways can it be improved? In this project I will visit several field sites across the island of Borneo to interview volunteers and staff, culminating in a best practice guidelines to operating successful volunteer tourism projects.
