Wildlife Conservation Volunteering

Conservation is one of the biggest issues global we have to face today. With a vast amount of species and habitats in imminent danger, organised conservation research and development projects are hugely valuable in the short and long term.

Who can volunteer in wildlife conservation?

With more than 20 years’ experience in organising and running conservation projects, Frontier has a great range of placements, whatever the experience level and aspirations of the applicant. Many of our volunteers have achieved or are working towards formal qualifications in conservation or biology, but we also cater for volunteers with no prior experience.

Those who are working towards a career in conservation may well undertake one of our longer-term placements, acting as an Assistant Research Officer as they gain the experience or undertake the field research necessary to complete their studies or move to the next level in their career.

Volunteers who wish to take their first steps in conservation are equally valued. A short- or medium-term project such as our Madagascar Wildlife Conservation Adventure may be perfect. Volunteers will learn the fundamentals of wildlife surveying and will be able to collect data that will be used in formal wildlife conservation research and development. Most volunteers will have the option to earn the Tropical Habitat Conservation BTEC qualification.

Where can I go for my wildlife conservation project?

With the large amount of projects that we manage, we are able to offer an exciting range of options. With a unique endemic range of wildlife including lemurs and chameleons, Madagascar is a great favourite with conservation volunteers.

Our project on the eco reserve of Mafia island in Tanzania monitors species such as flying foxes, fruit bats and bush babies, while our Costa Rica project monitors species including pumas, sea turtles and howler monkeys in the most biodiverse area in the world.

Other location options include Kenya, Indonesia, South Africa, Thailand and Ecuador.

Applying for a wildlife conservation project with Frontier

We believe that we can find the best wildlife project for you, whatever your experience and whatever your aims. We can support the research work of those working towards qualifications or field placements, or we can recommend the best project to get a taste for conservation work while enjoying a picturesque location with like-minded people.
