Become a volunteer
Volunteers are just as vital to Chimfunshi as donations are. Without their contribution we would not be able to manage the workload, hense volenteers are always welcome!
Get a upclose experience with our chimpanzees and accompany our knowledgeable keepers in their daily care! Volunteering allows a unique opportunity to observe the social behavior of chimpanzees in their most natural habitat within virtually intact family groups. The enrichment of volunteering at Chimfunshi includes being surrounded by the native ethnic Chimfunshi community, social interactions and your contribution towards educational projects while getting to know the people and culture of Zambia.
If you have any queries or are interested in contributing toward the chimpanzees and people of Chimfunshi as a volunteer, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
In recent years, the Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage has evolved into a major centre for education and research. The sanctuary offers the unique opportunity for scientists and students to observe the complex social behavior of chimpanzees in large social groups in a nearly natural habitat.
The junior research program aims to support the CWOT initiative to promote an increased participation of young people in issues related to chimpanzees, wildlife and research. The organization also aims to develop and strengthen the contact with new and already engaged international stakeholders and the capacity building and empowering of local youth which can help with their future as professionals and improve the educational opportunities in Zambia.
