The Great Projects offers more than 35 projects to those wishing to work alongside some of the world’s most incredible wildlife species. In addition to helping our volunteers to make a difference to conservation efforts, we proudly offer those same experiences in completely breath-taking environments: from volunteering with orangutans in the Bornean rainforest to swimming with whale sharks in the Indian Ocean, you’re sure to find a project that’s perfect for you. What’s more, we ensure that our volunteers are completely immersed in their chosen experience, enabling you to have a taste of the life of an animal keeper, game ranger, or wildlife conservationist during your time on our projects.
So, if you’ve always dreamed of working with animals abroad, then why not consider joining one of our projects today? Our experiences promise to be memorable, rewarding, and meaningful – so get in touch to see how you can get involved. We send our volunteers to exciting destinations around the world on a range of unique and thoroughly worthwhile projects, helping travellers to make a real, sustainable difference to their chosen cause. What’s more, we provide our volunteers with a dedicated UK-based team who ensure that they are supported through all stages of their experience: from the initial enquiry all the way through to your return home, you can rest assured that our team will be ready to provide you with all the informative, friendly assistance you could possibly need.
We work with organisations worldwide to establish high standards in animal welfare and conservation within the responsible tourism sector. The Great Projects believe in using sustainable tourism as a tool to positively impact local communities and at-risk environments to aid the conservation of endangered animals and fragile ecosystems. You won’t find any of our projects or tours exploiting animals, the local area or the community, and we refuse to work with any organisation which fails to adhere to responsible tourism standards.
