Environmental and Agriculture
Now more than ever we have needed to consider our natural environment and the way we treat it and the animals that coin-habit it with us. Join in the protection of endangered species, saving the natural environment or helping improve the quality of life for rescued animals. VAGT offers affordable volunteer abroad programs in Latin America and Southern Africa. Contribute your efforts to responsible and trusted wildlife conservation organisations, animal sanctuaries and animal shelters. Volunteering in one of our affordable environmental programs could see you releasing hundreds of baby turtles into the ocean off the coast of Costa Rica; you could be swimming and bathing abused and orphaned elephants in the rivers of Sri Lanka; or tracking, monitoring and even feeding the Big Five during a volunteer abroad program in South Africa. There are numerous diverse functions that you can perform to help animals, so you are not required to have specific knowledge about them. You will also perform maintenance work in enclosures and environmental enrichment initiatives for local flora and fauna. You will be working closely with local organizations and community members to support both proactive and reactive methods of protecting our mother earth.
