Live among Africa's spectacular wildlife while volunteering at the Wildlife Sanctuary. A refuge for at-risk or injured animals, the sanctuary allows volunteers to work alongside staff, caring for and consistently improve the quality of life for the animals. Volunteers can choose to either focus on a particular species or work on one of the many construction programs. These include creating firebreaks, a vulture kitchen, enclosure construction, and other conservation initiatives that may be in place.

Discover the unique biodiversity of Pez Maya in this fantastic volunteer placement. Not only will volunteers come out as certified PADI divers but you will also gain a hands-on, practical field experience in environmental conservation. The project works to get volunteers out on as many dives as possible and though days on the research boat can be long there is plenty of spare time for fun dives and exploring! There is also a component of community outreach and education making this an extremely dynamic placement.

Volunteer Feedback
Bexsyra, a GoEco volunteer at the Multicultural Eco Summer Camp, wrote a post on our volunteer blog about her experience in Israel.  Here's an excerpt:

"The most exciting part about my journey was learning about the different cultures and religions. You can read about such things or watch them on TV but it is nothing like experiencing them first hand. I think it's very important to learn that there are people in this world who were raised differently from you, have different religions, eat different kinds of food but yet you can still relate to them in so many ways."
