Memorable parts? I went to the Wildlife Rescue Centre in Thailand, this was a fantastic project helping animals who had been mostly kept as pets. Itís hard to say what was the most memorable part of this vacation as there was so much variety and different experiences, itís difficult to decide what was the best part of it. I enjoyed working in teams and caring for the animals, the atmosphere in the center was just what I hoped for, somewhere dynamic with a lot going on and approachable friendly... (more)Cathy Bisset

Memorable parts? Tips? Local benefits? Overall rating? Poor. Not much meaningful work. It was not well organized in keeping volunteers busy. There were lots of occasions when we ran out of jobs and were told to wander around and look for things to do. Myself and my grandchildren were extremely disappointed. We had a family meeting and left early. Still a bad taste in our mouth. After staying there I felt that the fee charged was excessive. John Brown. (more)John Brown
