There are few things more special than travelling to some of the most far-flung destinations in the world. However, volunteering on animal conservation projects in the countries you visit could make the experience even more memorable.
With i-to-i, you can assist on a variety of projects, all designed to aid the survival of some of the most vulnerable and beautiful creatures on the planet.
Through your efforts, you can work towards ensuring that these special animals are around for future generations to admire, so why not book your volunteering break today? Or, if you want to find out more about projects like this, read on.
All about animal conservation
Making the decision to work with animals as you travel could be one of the most rewarding things you ever do. Indeed, when you volunteer your time in this way, you are rewarded with the unique opportunity to see these creatures up close and in their natural habitat.
With i-to-i, you can help care for and preserve the future of lions, pandas, elephants, orangutans, tigers and many more besides. And our packages are available in countries as diverse as South Africa, Peru, Argentina, Costa Rica, China and the Galapagos Islands.
Plus the work you will get to do is just as varied – although you will still have plenty of free time in which to explore your destination, relax and have fun. Best of all, you will know that you are really giving something back to the countries you are visiting by helping to preserve the biodiversity of these habitats.
What could be more unforgettable than feeding baby elephants in India, or caring for rescued monkeys in Ecuador? Alternatively, you could meet the orangutan residents of Borneo or spend your days hand-rearing lion cubs in South Africa.
If you want to lend a hand towards ensuring the future of one of the planet's most endangered creatures, then i-to-i's panda conservation project in China may be ideal. Here you can get up close to adorable giant pandas in the country's most remote areas.
In addition to being based in the breathtaking surroundings of the Qingling Mountains, you will also be able to work with other species like the golden monkey, takin and crested ibis.
All of this and you will be staying in one of the most culturally-rich and fascinating countries in the world.
