Volunteer Abroad With Animals

Frontier offers numerous opportunities to volunteer abroad with animals – whether you want to rescue and rehabilitate animals or contribute to their protection in wild environments. Volunteering abroad with animals is a wonderful way to become part of international conservation or animal rescue efforts and to gain hands-on experience taking care of endangered species.

What kind of volunteering abroad with animals can I take part in?

Frontier’s projects that allow participants to volunteer abroad with animals contribute to global conservation efforts to protect endangered species. Volunteers can visit numerous destinations such as Costa Rica, Fiji, Ecuador and South Africa where they can work in animal shelters and rescue centres for animals such as sloths, primates and big cats. Activities vary from project to project and volunteers are provided with flexible options in order to accommodate their personal interests. While conducting biodiversity surveys and collecting data on endangered species, participants will also work directly with these species by looking after rescued animals.  Being involved in the day to day running of the projects, one develops teamwork and leadership skills. By volunteering abroad with animals you will enrich your knowledge of wildlife and gain a new perspective on animal care.

Frontier's opportunites for volunteering abroad with animals

Frontier offers both opportunities for volunteering abroad with animals as well as professional experiences such as animal healthcare internships and wildlife awareness projects. The application process is simple and welcomes participants from different nationalities and cultures in order to build a diverse learning environment.  Once the application from is completed, there is a short interview that will provide future volunteers with more information on the activities in the project. Frontier wishes to motivate people from different backgrounds to volunteer abroad with animals as it offers an exciting opportunity to raise environmental awareness and to protect endangered species all over the world.
