There are volunteer programmes in Peru, Borneo, Costa Rica and Cambodia.

Volunteering in Marine & Sea Turtle Conservation

Average Volunteer Rating for our Conservation Projects
(4.8 / 5)

Peru Amazon Conservation Project

The Peru Amazon Rainforest Project is based in an idyllic setting deep within the Amazon rainforest of Peru, Manú National Park. Volunteers live and work in the amazon to protect the forest that still habours endangered species such as jaguars, pumas, ocelots, tapirs, sloths, anacondas, river otters, caiman and a myriad of others. Manú is a major biodiversity hotspot.

Borneo Marine Conservation

The marine conservation project focuses on protecting and replanting coral reefs damaged by 45 years of illegal blast fishing around the islands of the Celebes Sea, Malaysian Borneo. Damaged reefs offer no hiding places for fish, and blast-rubble scattered over the sea floor leaves bare sand, which supports few species.

Costa Rica Sea Turtle Conservation

The Costa Rica Sea Turtle Conservation project focuses on  the conservation of four species of sea turtles - the Oliver Ridley, Pacific Black & the occasional Leatherbacks & Hawksbills. The main objective of the project is to alleviate the natural and man-made threats that affect the turtle's nests on the beaches.

Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary

The Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary is based at the head of a beautiful jungle valley in Eastern Cambodia; it provides elephants with the most natural living environment possible. Dedicated to animal welfare the project also works tirelessly in elephant conservation to protect Cambodia's remaining wild elephant population.

Borneo Sea Turtle Conservation

The Borneo Sea Turtle Conservation Project focuses primarily on protecting and conserving endangered green and hawskbill turtles that nest on the beaches around the project between May & September. Although officially protected by law, turtle eggs can still be sold at markets and poachers often raid known nesting sites.

Peru Marine Conservation Project

The Peru Marine Conservation Project focuses on promoting and contributing to the conservation of the marine ecosystems in the Southeast Pacific specifically off the North Coast of Peru. This programme takes a holistic approach to conservation through scientific research, sustainability management, environmental education and inter-agency collaboration.
