Ayer Kerah, Melaka
The aim of this exciting project is for volunteers to work alongside the resident Malaysian zookeepers to improve the conditions of the animals living at the zoo. The standards in Malaysian zoos, as indeed in much of Asia, are not the same as at home but great efforts are being made to improve the conditions of the captive animals and bring them to an internationally acceptable level. The support and help of volunteers is vital to ensuring these changes happen, and every contribution, however small, is welcome. Take the chance to learn some Malay from the zookeepers - and perhaps even teach them some English! Days off can be spent exploring the local area or perhaps take the bus to explore the exciting capital city of Kuala Lumpur.
