We’re pleased to be celebrating 25 years of dedicated Frontier volunteers and projects in 2014! For 25 years Frontier volunteers, staff and host-country counterparts have worked tirelessly in their mission to safeguard biodiversity, build sustainable livelihoods and inspire young and old to make their travel meaningful.
Established in 1989 as a non-profit conservation and development non-governmental organisation (NGO), Frontier has been an innovator in creating quality volunteer programmes across the globe. Frontier’s first projects started in Tanzania as a partnership with the WWF to create the world’s first successful multi-user marine park in a developing country, a marine park which volunteers still work in today and one that exemplifies Frontier’s aim of creating long lasting and sustainable results.
Since then, Frontier’s has grown to operate over 330 capacity building conservation, community and adventure projects in over 60 countries spanning 5 continents. Over the past 25 years Frontier has volunteers of more than 30 nationalities take part in projects all around the world, making Frontier a truly international organisation with a global impact.
