Endangered species conservation

Overall, I had a good experience there. I’ve met people from four different countries. Working with other volunteers to prepare food for animals and clean their enclosures were fun. The work was taught by other volunteers, so we all had responsibilities of our duties and we cooperated as a team. However, I did not get chance to discuss wildlife conservation with local staffs and other volunteers. Apart from work, I enjoyed spending free time such as cooking and walking around the volunteer activity area with other volunteers.

  • Surrounded by nature
  • Many animals
  • Lack of communication/discussion with staffs

Great experience

Wasn’t sure what to expect at first but the company reassured me when I emailed and provided me with all the information I needed. Overall the programme was great and it’s something I will always remember. I made lifelong friends and learnt lots of things that I didn’t previously know. The woman running the program was really welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed. The facilities were good and if there was ever a problem it was resolved with short notice. Would definitely recommend, good value for money.

  • Working closely with animals
  • Something different from normal life
  • Not much to do in the area
  • Lots of free time

Conservation Volunteering in Perth, Australia

Volunteering Solutions has been very helpful as an agency in relaying information and answering queries. The Conservation Volunteer Program at Perth with Conservation Volunteering consists of daily tasks such as weeding and planting at different places around Perth, as well as a one-week project in an remote area where volunteers get to experience camping. For me, I went to the D'Entrecasteux Country park for the one-week project which was fun and life-changing.
