Animal Care Abroad

Animal Care Abroad


Habitats and species are globally under threat from deforestation and illegal hunting for meat or the pet industry. As a result many animals are orphaned, injured and in need of rehabilitation at wildlife sanctuaries that are reliant on volunteers to stay open.

 

Working in a sanctuary will provide volunteers with a varied experience where new animals may be being admitted, and healthy animals restored back into the wild. Sanctuary work provides volunteers with a hands-on experience working with animals, helping with feeding, maintenance of enclosures, and providing care to young or sick animals. Sanctuary work can also provide volunteers with the opportunity to help promote a greater understanding of animal care or further research into animal behaviour, in addition to making an invaluable contribution to the overall running of sanctuaries.

 

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