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 Kortni Abrams

The village where I was working was so amazing, as were the locals. Without a doubt, this was one of the best learning and developing experiences of my life. I cannot wait for my next volunteering experience and opportunity to do it all over again. I am so grateful for the trip. One of my favorite moments was on one of my night patrols. I found a mamma turtle nesting, and after doing all the protocol that comes with that, egg catching/counting, track measuring etc., I got to watch her make her way back into the sea. She had glowing plankton on her shell, so as she slowly but surely headed back to the ocean, she just looked so mystical and I really appreciated the amazing creatures I was getting the opportunity to see and know.
