About Program

Work with rescued wolves in Portugal, helping to provide care, food and safety. The sanctuary is located just 40 minutes from Lisbon within the boundary of a National Park. The area is beautiful, wild and rugged - a perfect new home for the wolves.

Volunteers help to prepare food and feed the wolves, ensure that they have enough water, monitor their behavior and improve their habitat. You will be helping with removing alien vegetation and planting native species.

This project offers unrivaled access to wolves, conservation and life off Portugal's beaten track. Explore the beaches, cities and ancient sights in your free time at the weekends.

Oyster Worldwide is passionate about the importance of responsible travel. We want our projects to fit in with the local way of life, without having a negative impact on the environment, culture or economy. This means that we will only send participants to places where there is a real need and where we have been asked to work. Once there, they should fit in with the community, respecting their way of life and supporting, rather than taking, local jobs.
