What our volunteers and interns say...

Brandon Liu
Intern
, WWF-Malaysia PJ

"I have spent many years of my life ignoring and neglecting alarming environmental issues, until I was given the opportunity to complete an internship with WWF-Malaysia. The experience had been life-transforming; truly one of my most exciting experiences ever.

"I was able to connect with people and bond with nature under the Brand Activation Unit. I learned how fulfilling and satisfying it can be being able to contribute to a greater cause on a daily basis. So give yourself a chance and  join us at WWF-Malaysia and to be a part of the panda family."


Hazel Chee
Volunteer,
WWF-Malaysia PJ

"In just three months I met people from all walks of life – students, staff and volunteers who were genuinely enthusiastic and passionate about preserving wildlife by working together. I got the chance to observe turtles up close during a visit to Malacca’s Turtle Sanctuary, learning about the conservation efforts carried out to protect these gentle creatures. I even caught a glimpse of a batch of turtle eggs that the locals had found during the day! 

"My time spent as a volunteer at WWF-Malaysia had been 'fun-time working' for me, it was certainly an experience I shall never forget."


Rasmus Gren Havmøller,
Volunteer, WWF-Malaysia KK


"When I first met with the WWF-Malaysia’s Rhino Patrolling and Monitoring Unit (RPU) in Lahad Datu, Sabah, I didn’t really expect very much. The rhinos are by far the rarest of all animals in Borneo and even to see the slightest sign of one would be exceptional and a dream come true.

"After my first week, I was very kindly invited by the Sabah Wildlife Department to Tabin Wildlife Reserve to see Tam, the rhino that was rescued by the Sabah Wildlife Department, WWF-Malaysia and Borneo Rhino Alliance in a joint operation in 2008.

"Meeting Tam was truly one of the biggest experiences of my life. Small compared to the other rhino species and covered in black hairs, Tam was very friendly and almost constantly making squeaky singing sounds that you wouldn’t expect from a Rhino. It almost resembles the “singing” of a Humpback whale.

"I’m very grateful to WWF-Malaysia for taking me in as a volunteer. It was no walk in the park, but the whole experience was truly fulfilling. Everyone should have the chance to see a small hairy rhino in the jungles of Borneo and hear it sing."
