I would most definitely recommend Globalteer to anyone who is interested in volunteering. My experience with Globalteer was amazing and I've volunteered with... read more them two years in a row now in Siem Reap. The staff are incredible and very accommodating which definitely made the idea of travelling to a new country alone a lot less daunting.

Siem Reap itself is a wonderful town with plenty of restaurants, local and western, and an endless list of things to do. I would most definitely recommend Globalteer to anyone who's interested in volunteering. read less1/14/2018

All the staff and volunteers I worked with were very friendly and supportive. My time spent volunteering in Siem Reap, Cambodia, with Globalteer... read more was one of the most eye-opening and inspiring experiences I've had. Volunteering in local schools allowed me to see parts of the area that I wouldn't have been able to as a tourist, and coaching sports to the school children offered me a chance to interact with locals and engage in their culture. Communication with Globalteer leading up to and during my trip was easy and constant. All the staff and volunteers I worked with were very friendly and supportive, always eager to help me out with any issues or concerns I had. Free time during the evenings and weekends allowed me to explore and enjoy what Siem Reap has to offer. I would definitely recommend Globalteer to anyone wishing to immerse themselves in a new culture, step out their comfort zone and make a difference to the local area! read less1/13/2018

It was a life-changing experience for me, one that I will never forget. I absolutely loved my time volunteering in Cambodia with Globalteer!... read more I worked at Helping Hands School in a rural village outside of Siem Reap--very different from my native New York City.

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. The project also works tirelessly in elephant conservation to protect Cambodia's remaining wild elephant population.
The Peru Wildlife Shelter is a lifeline for abused and endangered animals in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. 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.
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.

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.

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.
The Thailand Elephant Sanctuary gives safe haven to rescued elephants so they can live a life as close as possible to their wild relatives. Without the sanctuary these lovely animals would otherwise be roaming the streets, suffering terrible conditions at working elephant camps or being exploited by the tourist industry.

The project provides a safe haven for the bears so they can have live a better life.
Volunteer work with Wildlife in Laos at the country's only official wildlife release centre. Thousands of protected animals are illegally traded through Laos every day. Without the centre, local authorities wouldn’t be able to enforce wildlife laws, and rescue animals, who would then not have a safe location for their rehabilitation and, where possible, release.
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.
Wildlife conservation volunteering at a rehabilitation and release centre for animals saved from the illegal wildlife trade. Sulawesi Island, the location of the project, remains the jumping off point for illegal shipments of animals for the exotic pet and ‘medicinal’ markets. The existence of the project means authorities are able to enforce, raid and rescue animals that are being trafficked and home them with the project.
The Argentina Monkey Sanctuary has been working for over 20 years with howler monkeys - a species which inhabits the forests and jungles of northeast Argentina but is hunted for sale for the domestic pet trade. The resident monkeys have been rescued from around the country through government seizures, zoo closures and voluntary surrendering of pets. They all now live a happier life at the sanctuary.
