Wildlife conservation and community volunteer projects and internships worldwide

We believe that safety and peace of mind are vital when volunteering abroad. It is therefore one of our conditions when booking a volunteer project abroad with us that you have adequate travel & medical insurance in place. With this in mind, we have partnered with Battleface, Go Walkabout and World Nomads who offer a variety of travel insurance policies which you can choose from.
