Get involved in wildlife conservation

Deforestation, hunting, and habitat loss are just some of the dangers wildlife face and biodiversity is threatened and wildlife corridors shutdown. Getting involved in wildlife conservation is a fantastic way to express a commitment preserving the fragile ecosystems that exist around the world, and a great way to learn more about nature.

Whether you’re an animal enthusiast or ecology specialist, there are a wide range of wildlife conservation projects on offer. You could work in a Namibian wildlife sanctuary helping to rehabilitate cheetahs and baboons, or you could research for your dissertation in Costa Rica as you track big cats, survey primates, and help to protect turtle nesting sites.

If working with wildlife is something you’re considering as a career it could be worth thinking about gaining a qualification such as a BTEC or FGASA qualification. This is a certain way to have an amazing experience and make a difference on a project, all while improving your CV.

Where to get involved in wildlife conservation obviously depends on the type of animals you’d like to work with. If you’ve a passion for a single species you could try a project focused on their protection, working in a panda sanctuary in China or with elephants in Thailand could be for you. Or feel the thrill of a seeing a guar or peccaries captured on a camera trap in Cambodia or Costa Rica. See something out of the ordinary by visiting Madagascar and examining the abundance of endemic species – the choice is up to you!

Since 1989 Frontier has worked to establish conservation on biodiversity by working alongside local communities to ensure long-term results that reduce human-animal conflict. Take your chance to get involved now by getting in contact via the website to start your application or discuss project options with one of our volunteer advisors.
