Whether you’re supporting turtle conservation efforts, improving the protected natural habitats of wildlife in Africa and Asia, or providing care for abandoned dogs and cats in the animal shelters of South America or Central America, there is no shortage of help needed in our Wildlife and Animal Care volunteer projects.
In the projects focused on habitat conservation, volunteers have the unique opportunity to maintain natural landscapes, learn wildlife conservation techniques, as well as study and monitor native and endangered animals. The projects focused on animal shelters provide support to local organizations in feeding, caring and playing with the animals as well as helping with cleaning and facility maintenance.
Volunteers can work on programs helping with turtle conservation, working in animal care facilities or on animal rights campaigns, helping on a wolf conservation, elephant conservation, or wildlife conservation park.
