Conservation Projects

If you want to get up close and personal to animals whilst traveling, to use your passion for a purpose and to really get stuck in and make a difference, then our conservation volunteer projects are for you. Volunteering with animals allows you to spend longer in one place, to really get to know the local culture, food, people and rhythm of a country. To put down roots for a few weeks or months and to understand what day to day life is really like away from the tourist route.

Our conservation projects are renowned for being ethical, sustainable and dynamic. First and foremost, we value animal welfare. As such you can join any of our projects knowing that you are doing real, wholesome and important work. We stand strongly against any type of animal ‘petting’. We do not support elephant riding or shows, and none of our projects breed animals unless part of a registered and externally managed endangered species breeding programme.

Any physical interaction you may have with animals is regulated and slowly withdrawn as the individual grows up, for the purpose of creating a releasable animal. We aim, where possible, for every rescued animal to live out their days totally wild, or when medical or mental restrictions dictate, in a soft release programme.

People join these projects for many reasons. Some wish to or are already studying animal courses at college or university. From equine studies to animal science and everything in between. Some are looking for industry specific experience, to make contacts, network or work abroad in the future. Some are looking for a way to travel that brings purpose and meaning to their lives and play their part in preserving the natural world for generations to come. Whatever your reason, you will meet likeminded friends and colleagues, brought together by the same purpose. You will work with animals, but also with the communities and the ecosystems that support them; a holistic approach to conservation. So if you can lend your valuable extra pair of hands to our cause, check out the projects below.
