Internships & Careers
You can provide urgently needed
help to grassroots projects in 24 amazing countries worldwide. These
worthwhile volunteer projects, which last from 1,2, or 3 week vacations (Escapes)
or 4-24 weeks (Ventures), will make a lasting impact.
Examples of volunteer experiences include the Santa Cruz Zoo which showcases Bolivia's diverse wildlife. You could work with a variety of exotic animals and give much needed help to this zoo that has to downsize their staff. The Zoo also preserves endangered species and provides educational workshops to school groups so they can learn about fragile Bolivian ecosystems.
At the zoo you might help staff
care for and feed the animals, construct new habitats, landscape the grounds,
or assist with general maintenance. Spanish speakers could also act
as tour guides.
Bring an easy-going but hard-working spirit and you‘ll enjoy a variety of activities. This can include anything from removing invader plants at the nature conservancies to cleaning cages and preparing food for a huge variety of animals. Help improve the environment of the animals by assisting with land maintenance as well.
