Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary

The Cambodia Elephant Sanctuary is based at the head of a beautiful jungle valley in Eastern Cambodia, providing rescued elephants with the most natural living environment possible. Also, the project works tirelessly in elephant conservation to protect Cambodia's remaining wild elephant population.

Peru Wildlife Sanctuary

The Peru Wildlife Shelter is a lifeline for abused and endangered animals in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. Indeed, many of the animals at the centre have been rescued from illegal trafficking and the pet trade or abusive homes. The project is dedicated to animal welfare and treats & rehabilitates the animals; and when possible, releases them back into the wild.

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.

Thailand Wildlife Sanctuary

An opportunity for working with animals in Thailand; the sanctuary provides a safe haven for many species of rescued animals that are endangered or under threat for many different reasons. Most of the animals are victims of the pet trade and or tourist trade. Others have been rescued from unsuitable living conditions at temples, zoos and other rescue centres.

Peru Dog Rescue Shelter

The Peru Dog Rescue Project provides a humane and long term solution to the stray dog problem that is commonplace in Peru. The main objective of the project is to nurture the dogs back to health through receiving veterinary treatment at the hands of partner veterinarians, and receiving daily loving care and attention from volunteers.
