Animal Conservation Jobs

Many passionate animal lovers find themselves eventually asking the question - what does it take to get a job in animal conservation? A great way to start is by narrowing down your options, as most animal conservation jobs have a specific species or conservation focus and will only consider candidates who have proven experience in that area. Focusing on the types of animal conservation which you are most interested in will help you build the skills and experience you need to pursue a career in that area.

How can Frontier help me get a job in animal conservation?

If you are looking to work in animal conservation but are not sure where to start, volunteering on one of Frontier's animal conservation projects can be a great way to experience the work first-hand.  Many Frontier volunteers who are just starting their career in animal welfare discover their passion while working with us. Different types of animal conservation jobs include habitat and species protection, scientific research and animal welfare such as veterinary or sanctuary work. On Frontier’s animal conservation projects you’ll have the opportunity to work with professionals in all of these areas and learn what it takes to be successful in the job. Frontier’s projects are intrinsically rewarding, but they have also opened the door to paid jobs in animal conservation for our former volunteers, be it with our partner organisations or as a member of our own staff.

What kind of volunteering will be useful for finding a job in animal conservation?

Frontier runs wildlife conservation programmes in some of the most remote and biodiverse locations on the globe. Conserving these habitats and the animals that depend on them is vital as they often host endemic species; that once lost can never be recovered.  Frontier’s volunteers support our trained research staff in animal conservation jobs, by collecting data on threatened wildlife populations as well as working with the local community on conservation initiatives.  Our volunteers have the opportunity to work alongside local governments, businesses and community leaders which can help them build a valuable network that can help them get their foot in the door for their first animal conservation job.
