The Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (PWRCC) is the only wildlife rehabilitation center in Palawan. As part of a partnership between the center and ABConservation, European volunteers are recruited to help the team in the daily care of animals and the construction of new enclosures. Creating enrichment, repairing aviaries, sexing snakes, releasing eagles, handling crocodiles, fixing enclosures, ... Volunteer tasks at the PWRCC are varied and flexible according to your skills and your ideas to improve the welfare of permanent residents or to address some issues faced by the center. You will be fully immersed by working among the all-Filipino team, which will also allow you to live an extraordinary human adventure.

There is no minimum volunteering period and no specific skills are required for this mission, although the program is more specifically aimed at professionals in the field of animal care/management or agriculture (there is a project to create an orchard to provide part of the animals' feed). Please note that basic proficiency in English is necessary to communicate with the PWRCC team.

For any question or further information feel free to contact us!

Volunteer on our other programs

There is no specific volunteer position offered in the Bearcat Study Program or in « From Awareness to Actions for Nature Conservation ».However, if you are motivated and believe you could help us, you can send us a spontaneous application with your CV and a cover letter stating clearly how you would like to be involved during your mission. Given that both programs take place in the Philippines and entail very specific missions, please note that applications to volunteer for less than two months will not be considered.
