Opportunities to volunteer overseas?

6 posts in this topic

Hi

 

Does anyone have any recommendations for organisations offering volunteering placements overseas, short term, I.e. 2-3 weeks focusing on predators and small mammals? I have seen one recently advertised for later this month and it got me thinking about other possibilities.

 

Thanks

 

Jo

WildlifeACT I have been with, and are excellent. Strong wild dog focus. Will do a TR on it very soon when I've got some more work done!

Jo - you could do a volunteer trip to Humani Ranch on Savé Valley too. If you like, I can get and post the details here. But as everyone knows, Save is a hunting area, and people should know that ahead of time, though they do keep the photo & hunting separate. Some of the other ranches on SVC also offer these volunteer opps - but you actually have to do some maintenance type work in these programs.

Thanks Sangeeta, I would be very interested thank you. I am sure others would benefit from this too!

Has anyone heard of an outfit called winterdodger and can comment on them? It was this trip that got me thinking about volunteering: http://www.winterdodger.org/overland-trips.html

 

Looked really interesting although the wildlife act one looks equally as good actually..
