Volunteering in Marine & Sea Turtle Conservation

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

Peru Amazon Conservation Project

Conservation volunteering abroad in the Peruvian Amazon; in an idyllic setting deep within the Amazon rainforest of Peru. 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. Damaged reefs offer no hiding places for fish; and blast-rubble scattered over the sea floor leaves bare sand, which supports few species. You can also gain your PADI certification while volunteering.

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 project's main objective is to alleviate the natural and man-made threats that affect the turtle's nests.

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.  Although officially protected by law, turtle eggs can still be sold at markets and poachers often raid known nesting sites. Assist with conservation efforts to save the sea turtles.

Peru Marine Conservation Project

Marine conservation volunteering abroad in the north of Peru. This project focuses on promoting and contributing to the conservation of the marine ecosystems in the Southeast Pacific. This programme takes a holistic approach to conservation through scientific research, sustainability management, environmental education and inter-agency collaboration.
