Calling all conservationists!

Do you care about conservation? Become a conservation volunteer and help protect some of the world's amazing environments. Head to South Africa and sign up for South Africa Big 5 Conservation, staying on a private game reserve. Take part in vital wildlife conservation and anti-poaching projects or help protect, preserve and restore wild habitats at an Australian conservation project.

Want to protect wildlife?

If you care about the welfare of the world's wildlife, why not volunteer at a wildlife project? Get involved with animal rescue in the Amazon or have an elephant experience in Thailand. Work with wildlife projects in Costa Rica or Australia, or travel to South Africa and volunteer at a wildlife sanctuary or with mischievous monkeys!

Amazing marine conservation

Make a difference around the world as a marine conservation volunteer. The earth's underwater world is under threat. Help save sea turtles in Bali, Costa Rica or Sri Lanka, or save Great White Sharks, whales and other marine wildlife in stunning South Africa!

Our oceans are our largest habitat, and contain between 50 - 80% of all life on Earth. They’re a bio-diverse wonder, and the source of at least half our oxygen. But they’re under threat, with coral bleaching, pollution, over-fishing and rising sea-levels. Help to protect our oceans, as a marine conservation volunteer in one of our epic locations.

Imagine releasing baby sea-turtles into the sea in Costa Rica, collecting eggs from endangered African penguins, or looking into the prehistoric eye of a great white shark from a diving-cage in South Africa. Our trips are packed with experiences that you’ll never forget. And you can go home knowing that as well as exploring this beautiful planet, you helped leave it a better place.

Change the world for the better as a conservation volunteer!
