There's no shortage of help needed in IVHQ's Wildlife and Animal care projects, where volunteers have the opportunity to support turtle conservation efforts around the world, improve and protect the habitats of wildlife in Africa and Asia, or provide assistance in animal shelters in South and Central America.
Volunteers who choose to focus on habitat conservation, will learn wildlife conservation techniques while maintaining natural landscapes, as well as studying and monitoring native and endangered animals. While those that choose to work in an animal shelter assist local organizations in caring, feeding and playing with animals while maintaining and cleaning animal shelters and facilities.
