Veterinary help needed in Indonesian Borneo

Help improve animal welfare in Indonesia by sharing your skills and experience!

Facility and Program Description:
Kawasan Wisata Pendidikan Lingkungan Hidup (KWPLH) is an environmental education center located in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. The facility’s goal is to increase environmental awareness and animal welfare. In addition to our animal programmes, the facility has several education buildings, picnic areas and playgrounds. To see a full description of the KWPLH’s facilities and goals visit www.beruangmadu.org or email us.

KWPLH provides a wonderful accommodation in the form of a forested enclosure for 6 sun bears rescued from the illegal pet trade. Sun bears are the mascot of Balikpapan, and many of our current education programs focus on this species.

Our Domestic Animal Program was created in response to the frequent dumping of kittens/puppies at KWPLH. We have attempted to establish a safe home for abandoned animals and a sterilization and adoption program. We currently have 125+ cats under our care as well as close to 30 dogs, and occasionally take care of other rescued wildlife species whenever brought to the center (macaque, civets, slow loris, birds).

The goals of our Domestic Animal Program are:

Experienced Volunteer Vet Nurses Needed
We are in need of experienced vet nurse to assist with training and development of our local animal care team. The primary goal is to further train up our team [specifically our local veterinarian] in specialist medical care for our animals, under more or less challenging conditions, and to train our Indonesian animal care-taking staff in mastering necessary skills and knowledge on specialist issues that need frequent treatments.

Other tasks include ideas on improvement of our medical administration and records, enrichment and training programs, and enhancing our adoption programme. There will be work with the sun bears and other wild species, but most time will go to our domestic animals and staff training.

Outlined below is a list of topics that we need help with:

For more details about KWPLH and the veterinary position please email us!

We welcome the help from professional veterinarian in 2022-2023. The position is preferably for 3+ months, but do e-mail us as well if you are available for shorter periods. Free housing is provided at the center, but a small local catering fee is required for meals. A volunteer visa will need to be applied for at a small cost. Couples are also welcome to apply.

wecare_logo.jpg

* PAID VET NURSE POSITIONS IN SOUTHERN SRI LANKA- ECC/HOSPITAL/COMMUNITY OUTREACH *

** Location- WECare Veterinary Hospital, Talalla, Sri Lanka **

Wanna spend your days (and hard-earned skills!) helping those who really need it?! At WECare, we are vets and nurses doing just that! Sri Lanka is home to millions of street dogs and they need our help more than ever… Our work is not for the faint-hearted- most of it is trauma-based- but we pride ourselves on providing the very best care to animals who have no one looking out for them. AND WE ARE BUSYYYYY- we NEED YOU!!

WECare is a UK vet and nurse run charity providing high standard veterinary care to the millions of roaming dogs in Sri Lanka in need of vet care. We don’t believe street dogs should receive second rate care because they don’t have an owner… and we don’t believe vets/nurses should have to practice second rate care if they want to do something good (/get out of the corporate rat race!). We work to UK standards.

We are looking to recruit VET NURSES (2 years + experience) on minimum two year contracts to help us on our mission of ensuring no street dog goes without veterinary care! We are expanding our reach and impact within Sri Lanka and so need a few more incredible additions to the team to make this happen. We are looking for candidates for two separate roles- one to cover the ECC/Hospital and one to assist with our Outreach Programmes (mass neuter, vacc, microchip and education).

Benefits include-

We are located in one of the most beautiful spots on the south coast with incredible beaches, lots of surf and yoga, and most importantly a lovely supportive community behind us. The work can be tough, emotionally and physically, so we don’t want to sugarcoat it but, for the right candidate, this is an incredible opportunity to practice international standard medicine, really make a difference every single day and get back to what being a nurse should be- helping animals in need!!

Do you want to help our local animals and enjoy a stay in paradise?

Your volunteer stint will expose you to a varied caseload. Previous volunteers have said Te Are Manu is a wonderful place for clinical professional development.

Our services include seeing patients for skin conditions, road traffic accidents, dog bite and other wounds, fish poisoning and a high volume of spey and neuter surgeries.

You will also get to explore the beautiful place that we call home.

Ideally we would like volunteers who can stay for 4-6 weeks but please contact us if you can only stay for a shorter period! We willl do what we can to accommodate that. At the moment we are trying to source vets from 13th January 2022 onwards, when our border with New Zealand reopens. We hope that the border restrictions will ease as the year goes on. You will need to be vaccinated (two doses) and have a negative Covid test prior to travel.

We arrange all visa requirements for entry into the Cook Islands.

We will greet you at the airport and make sure you get settled in to our beautiful volunteer house just a few minutes away from the clinic and on a stunning beach - great for swimming, snorkeling and relaxing.

Nurses Available


Louise Halsey, Worldwide Locations (posted 11th July) UK Qualified RVN

I am a Registered Veterinary Nurse from the West Midlands in Birmingham, United Kingdom. I've worked in the Veterinary industry for 17 years and have been a Qualified Veterinary Nurse for 6 years. Working in a range of Veterinary environments has helped make me the Nurse I am today, which include working for a busy referral centre and also for a large animal charity situated in the Midlands. I have also spent many years in general practice figuring out my key areas and learning and putting into practice new skills. After qualifying I went on to gain my ISVPS Nurses Certificate in Anaesthesia as I have a keen interest in this area and absolutely love Anaesthesia. I would absolutely love to use my nursing skills and work abroad as travel is a huge part of who I am and I love exploring the world. 

I love having a great team around me who I can bounce off and pride myself in being able to work well independently and as part of a close knit team. 
I have previously back packed around Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Cambodia and am keen to get back out into the wide world again, meet new people and challenge myself. 

Please feel free to email me if you require any further details; louiseelizabethhalsey@hotmail.com
