Oceans2Earth Volunteers offers volunteering and adventure travel experiences for ethically minded animal and conservation lovers looking for the trip of a lifetime.
In creating Oceans2Earth Volunteers, the O2E founders challenge and engage individuals to contribute to meaningful animal welfare and conservation projects. As wildlife carers and avid animal welfare and rights campaigners, they uphold a vision to promote ethical volunteering as an advisable travel alternative.
O2E believes the way to solve the issues of animal mistreatment and environmental destruction and degradation is to provide people with the opportunity to contribute and interact so that they may develop their own personal culture of responsibility and global conservation. People exposed first hand to challenging bio diverse environmental issues are more likely to draw on those experiences and continue to make a positive impact once they arrive home.
Where possible, each project is visited by O2E so that we can immerse ourselves in the work, the accommodation, the animals and the community firsthand. This ensures that we best understand the project’s objectives, challenges and limitations while safeguarding that each project meets the Oceans2Earth Ethical Standards and Wildlife Code.
Projects offered by O2E Volunteers are located all around the globe including Asia, South America, Australia and Africa.
Volunteers have the opportunity to care for and improve the lives of a variety of animals such as kangaroos, koalas, elephants, bears, birds, dolphins, reptiles and primates of all types by conducting research, caring for animals in captivity or contributing to rescue and release programs.
