Donate Funds

It all costs money and every little helps

Donations are an important source of funding, especially for all our sun bear and other animal work. A part of the operational costs of the center are covered by local government funds (wages of staff), but our animal care and further development of educational facilities depend 100% on donations and fundraising.

Volunteer help for locally-based individuals:

Giving time can be as rewarding as giving money



Going on a trip overseas? We frequently need supplies from foreign countries. Let us know when and where you are going and we will arrange for supplies to be sent to your destination for you to carry back to Balikpapan. We also deeply appreciate donations of pet supplies from overseas such as medications, treats, and toys.
