Animal Volunteering Abroad

Are you passionate about animals and want to get some hands-on experience? Frontier offers a range of various projects for animal volunteering abroad – from working at an animal sanctuary in tropical Thailand to wildlife conservation projects in the depths of the Costa Rican jungle. Volunteering with animals abroad can be one of the most rewarding experiences, as you’ll be able to immerse yourself in a whole new culture whilst making a real difference to the lives of animals that need your help.

Frontier's opportunities for volunteering with animals abroad

If you want to work directly with injured, sick or confiscated animals who have been rescued then one of our animal sanctuary projects would be perfect for you. We run these placements in many locations across the world – you can volunteer abroad with animals in Thailand, Costa Rica, South Africa, Ecuador, Australia and many more. On these projects you’ll be able to work with the animals closely – undertaking tasks such as feeding them, cleaning out their enclosures and even helping to rehabilitate them so that they can be released back into the wild. If you’re more passionate about preserving wild habitats to protect endangered animals, then check out our wildlife conservation projects. With this type of animal volunteering abroad you can assist with gathering research, undertaking surveys and generally helping out a team of international researchers dedicated to protecting wild animals’ natural environments.

Why choose Frontier for volunteering abroad with animals?

Frontier’s animal volunteering abroad projects can be joined for as little as one week up to several months – the choice is yours! If you have a particular interest in a certain type of animal you can also choose a project with this specific focus – such as our Thailand Elephant Care Experience or our Greece Turtle Conservation Project. Volunteering with animals abroad will make a great addition to your CV, as it shows dedication to a truly valuable cause as well as a desire to get outside of your comfort zone and experience new cultures around the world.
