Top 9 Reasons Why You Should Volunteer With Wildlife

Looking to do something with a bit of 'roar'? Volunteering with wildlife is as good as it gets... check out our top 6 reasons to head out into the wild and start experiencing life!

1) See a different side to the world: These animals aren't just cuddly and cute – and that’s not what we’re all about! Find out more about them as a species from the experts and take your time out to learn and grow.

2) Get to know them behind the scenes: Who else can say they've walked next to a lion, or tracked rhinos in the savannah?

3) Take part in essential research: On our lion projects, you'll be taking part in research which helps protect the species. Do your bit and lend a hand in an incredible environment!

4) See species you wouldn't see at home: The Galapagos, for example, is an incredible place to see and experience new wildlife. Far flung, exotic, awe-inspiring... what's not to like?

5) Photos, photos and more photos: Memories last a lifetime, but snaps help you remember them even better! New FB photos, anyone?

6) Because you'll come back and KNOW you've done something really, really good: Way to start the year off right? With a good deed!

7) Hands on time: With some species, you'll be able to get right up close!

8) Think of all of the social media updates!

9) Do something different -  diving with sharks? Taking part on this marine subject? Walking with lions? Volunteering allows you to do amazing things like this!
