Love animals? Volunteer with wonderful wildlife abroad! Volunteering at a wildlife project means playing an important role in saving animals. You can help to improve their environment and prevent threats to their survival. Help out as a volunteer in a wildlife park, game reserve or National Park. If you want a more hands-on approach with animals you can volunteer at an animal sanctuary or rescue centre. Look after the wellbeing of orphaned, abandoned or injured animals abroad!
You can volunteer with wildlife all around the world. Meet mischievous monkeys or big cats in Africa. Get up close to elephants in Thailand. See orangutans in Indonesia or have a great white shark encounter in South Africa. Get close to kangaroos and koalas in Australia. Help save sea turtles in Bali. Or make a difference to marine wildlife conservation in beautiful Belize. Getting involved with a wildlife conservation project is an amazing way to get your foot in the door of a future conservation career. It's also the ideal adventure for any animal lovers!
