Turtle Conservation in Costa Rica: Volunteers will support research and conservation work which involves counting turtles, measuring nests, collecting scientific information and night beach patrols. Volunteers may also get the opportunity to participate in the subsequent release of hatchlings to the sea!
Amazon Animal Welfare in Ecuador: Based at an animal rescue and rehabilitation center in the Amazon jungle, volunteers work in partnership with an indigenous Quichuan community. The program's mission is to rescue wild animals from unhealthy and illegal situations, such as animal-trafficking and mistreatment.
Amazon Environmental Protection in Ecuador: Volunteers work at a Biological Station carrying out field research and education in the tropical rainforest region of the upper Napo River in the Ecuadorian Amazon. The center also works on improving the health, nutrition and livelihood of the surrounding communities.
Wildlife Protection in South Africa: This amazing program is set in a game reserve which is situated in Port Elizabeth towards Grahamstown. Duties of volunteers vary on a day to day basis but will include tracking and monitoring animals, removing alien vegetation, mending fences, carrying out animal counts and feeding, working in the elephant sanctuary, or accompanying guides on game drives!
Elephant Conservation in Thailand: This program aims to provide physical labour for volunteers so that elephants do not need to be exploited for tourists. This is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live as and work with real Thai Mahouts and learn how to work with, train, feed and wash the elephants.
