Project of wildlife and forest conservation in East Java (low cost)

PROFAUNA Indonesia offers a wonderful opportunity for anyone to volunteer at Petungsewu Wildlife Education Center (P-WEC) in Malang, East Java.

Our center is located by the foot of Kawi Mountains, surrounded by plantations and villages, 10 kilometers from the city. It has guesthouses, outbound activity facilities, organic farm, and a cafe, where we put many information boards about wildlife and forest conservation for visitors to see.  People from all over the country come to our place to learn about the environment and nature conservation.

After spending one week at P-WEC, volunteer will be deployed to PROFAUNA's forest conservation program in Yang Highlands Wildlife Reserve, East Java. The program includes forest patrols and conducting educational program for local people.

Yang Highlands Wildlife Reserve can be reached within 5 hours drive from P-WEC, by a car provided by PROFAUNA.
