Animal Care Abroad wildlife conservation abroad

Animal Care Abroad

Deforestation and illegal hunting are continuous global threats to habitats and species. Due to these risks, many animals are often injured, orphaned and in need of care before being released back into the wild. This requires wildlife sanctuaries, and the sanctuaries require volunteer help in order to stay open and care for the affected animals.

Volunteering to work in a sanctuary will allow for a variety of experiences of caring and looking after a range of animals. It can be a hands-on experience that also includes helping with feeding, giving care to young or sick animals, and helping to maintain the enclosures. Not only do volunteers make a significant contribution to the running of the sanctuaries, the understanding of animal care and behaviour gained will be invaluable.

To apply for a project, or for more information, click the "Apply Now" button and one of our volunteer advisers will give you a call back to help you find the perfect wildlife conservation placement.
