Wildlife conservation and marine conservation: gap years from Frontier Conservation

Wildlife conservation and marine conservation: what better way to spend your gap year?

Wildlife conservation and marine conservation projects are perfect for anyone looking to take a year out, have a break from normal life and make a difference to the world.

It's not just students who volunteer abroad to do wildlife conservation or marine conservation work, and while the break between school and university is a great time to make your mark on the world, gap years are also an increasingly popular option for those who want to escape the rat race.

Frontier has been at the forefront of biodiversity research, wildlife conservation and marine conservation for over 20 years. Our gap year programmes are a chance to immerse yourself in another culture while helping the environment. Not only this, but when you get back you'll have a variety of new skills that will look great on your CV.

What will you do on a wildlife conservation or marine conservation gap year?

If you choose to undertake wildlife conservation or marine conservation project work, you'll spend your time in a local community, working to save endangered species, protect key habitats and work in animal care projects.

On wildlife conservation projects, you'll learn about the local environment and receive training in the measures and methodologies taken to protect it. Wildlife conservation gap years could even give you the chance to get up close to many of the creatures you're working to save, on anything from remote satellite camps to helping rehabilitate injured animals in sanctuaries.

If you choose a marine conservation project, you'll receive PADI dive training and you'll learn how to assess various habitats, getting the chance to study and explore the mysterious and magical marine environment. On some of our marine conservation gap year projects you could even work directly with the animals, such as monitoring sea turtle hatchlings.

What choices are there for wildlife conservation gap years?

If a wildlife conservation or marine conservation gap year sounds like the right choice for you, you'll have plenty of options to consider.

With Frontier, we offer so many options for wildlife conservation and marine conservation gap years that you'll feel spoilt for choice - but it can also be easy to narrow down the options to find the right year out adventure for you.

One of the main decisions when choosing a wildlife conservation or marine conservation gap year will be the location. Options are available around the world and it just depends on the type of habitat in which you'd like to work.

Marine conservation and wildlife conservation projects in Africa will give you the opportunity to help with conservation projects on the Tanzanian savannah or the jungles of Madagascar, while wildlife rescue in the Americas will work in dense tropical rainforests.

In Asia, wildlife conservation projects and marine conservation work are available across the continent, or if you're looking for opportunities a bit closer to home, why not try conservation work in Europe?
