Animal Care Abroad wildlife conservation abroad

Animal Care Abroad

Deforestation and illegal hunting are growing dangers to species of animals worldwide. These continuous threats result in many animals becoming orphaned, injured and in desperate need of recovery. Wildlife sanctuaries are built to help these animals but they require caring volunteers to stay in operation.

Volunteering in a wildlife sanctuary gives volunteers the chance to care for new animals being admitted as well as releasing healthy animals back into the wild. These sanctuaries provides hands-on experiences working with wild animals, feeding them, upkeep of their enclosures, providing care for sick animals, and looking after newborns. Volunteering in a wildlife sanctuary goes beyond the first-hand care of the animals by also promoting greater understanding of these wild animals and furthering research about animal behavior. Volunteers are the necessary components to keeping these sanctuaries running and to advancing research in the understanding of many fascinating animals.

To apply for a project, or for more information, click the "Apply Now" button and one of our volunteer advisers will give you a call back to help you find the perfect wildlife conservation placement.
