Choosing a wildlife or conservation volunteering option for your gap year gives you the opportunity to put your favourite skills to use, learn snazzy new ones and make new mates in amazing locations. We have volunteering projects all over the world, so if you want to explore the world and see what it has to offer - this is a great way to do so! If wildlife or conservation is your thing then look no further, as we reckon we've got the volunteering adventure for you!
Here at Real Gap Experience we have tonnes of incredible volunteering trips that you can get your teeth stuck in to. Our wildlife and conservation gap year adventures run all over the world, from South Africa to Costa Rica, Fiji to Malaysia. Spotting leopards in the savannah is right up there as a bucket list 'must do', and those of us who have been to Malaysia in the RG office loved seeing orangutans in Borneo. By volunteering with animals you get to experience incredible once in a lifetime things - you'd never be able to go behind the scenes of a private reserve and learn about lions, or check out elephants in the Namibian desert.
