Wildlife and Animal Care Volunteer Abroad Projects

Affordable Wildlife & Animal Volunteer Abroad Projects

Do you want to volunteer with animals abroad, or are you seeking wildlife volunteer opportunities to support conservation efforts internationally?

IVHQ’s affordable Animal Care and Wildlife Conservation volunteer projects offer international volunteers with the opportunity to provide vital support to local people and organizations in the protection of fragile ecosystems and species abroad.

You can choose to contribute to wildlife conservation efforts in Victoria Falls, wild elephant conservation in Sri Lanka, or sea turtle conservation in Costa Rica and Bali. There are also opportunities to provide care for abandoned cats and dogs in animals shelters in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico and Peru.

If you have a passion for environmental conservation and want to play a part in improving the protected natural habitats of wildlife in Africa or Asia, our Wildlife Conservation and Wild Elephant Conservation projects give you the unique opportunity to support the protection of natural landscapes, learn wildlife conservation techniques, as well as study and monitor native and endangered species.

If you’re interested in volunteering overseas with animals and want to join one of our animal care-focused projects in South America or Central America, you’ll be working in animals shelters and providing support in feeding, caring for, and playing with the animals, as well as helping with cleaning and facility maintenance.

Volunteer Project Review by Alexis Khoshaba
I volunteered on the Animal Care project in Guatemala and it was definitely suitable to what I wanted to do. My experience there was amazing and I wouldn't have changed it one bit. Each day that I spent at the shelter, I felt as though I was helping and making a difference and that everything I was doing was being greatly appreciated. Being able to experience how another country lives, especially a country like Guatemala was an eye opening experience for sure. Realizing that these people live with so little, yet are so thankful and happy with what they have was so humbling and life changing. Thank you IVHQ for giving me the opportunity to experience one of the best trips of my life.
