Project Info

The conservation of endangered species of plant and animal life and the protection of the environment in which we live are increasingly important considerations in today’s world. As the human population increases, natural habitats and resources are on the decline. We have developed many international projects where volunteers can contribute to the preservation of our planet.

Conservation & Environment volunteers work across the globe on a huge variety of projects – from the National Parks of South Africa and Kenya to the beaches of Mexico and Thailand, from the tropical forests of Peru and Costa Rica to the Himalayas in Nepal. You can even work in the Galapagos Islands.

Environmental Conservation Abroad

You can volunteer on one of our Conservation & Environment Projects at any phase in your life. Whether you are on a college summer break, gap year from education, career break or an extended vacation, there is important work for you to be involved in and you will make a great contribution. You do not need any previous experience to join and you will receive relevant training in all the work involved.

Group Conservation & Environment Projects for High School Students

For teen volunteers, Conservation & Environment projects are available as Conservation High School Special programs. High School Specials are designed for volunteers aged 16-19 to join a group of their peers working together under the guidance of our local staff.

Volunteering Abroad as a Professional on a Conservation & Environment Project
