Wildlife Conservation Volunteering

The different wildlife conservation options

There are a variety of habitats and species under threat around the world from deforestation, illegal hunting and a number of other factors. For this reason wildlife conservation can come in many different forms.

If you’d prefer to experience the wildlife in their natural habitats and enjoy working practically outdoors then general wildlife conservation programmes or game reserves could be for you. These will allow you to get involved with surveying and habitat restoration out in the wild.

However if you’d like more of a direct relationship with the animals then rescue centres or sanctuaries may be better suited to you. These opportunities allow you to work closely with the animals on a daily basis.

Countries with wildlife conservation projects

There are an almost limitless number of countries which need volunteers to work on conservation projects including some where you will find several species endemic to that particular area.

If the idea of going on a safari to see the Big Five has always fascinated you then take that one step further by joining a project in one of the game reserves or national parks in Africa.

If slightly more tropical creatures are your thing then volunteering in the Amazon rainforest and other intriguing rainforests in the Americas could be the best choice for you.

For those searching for oriental and unique experiences, Asia shouts out as the place to visit. Many of the continent’s wildlife are only found in Asia so there protection is even more important.

Working on terrestrial wildlife projects is not your only option however – our marine projects allow you to get up close and personal with the amazingly valuable and threatened coral reef and ocean life.

Marine projects can be experienced in Africa, Asia and Australasia and the South Pacific.
