Sabbatical Ideas –
From Oceania to Asia

New Zealand’s unique biodiversity, Australia’s untouched nature and the cultural treasures of Thailand make you experience a sabbatical adventure that you will never forget.

 

The beginning of your travel will take place in the nature paradise of New Zealand, where you will work as a volunteer on the protection of endangered plants and animals. You will start your travel in Auckland, Wellington or Punakaiki from where you will be allocated to different volunteering project sites. There you will plant trees to preserve the last kiwi populations, take care of hiking trails or conduct field studies to investigate New Zealand’s flora and fauna. 6 weeks later you will continue your travel to Australia, where wild nature and adventures are already waiting for you. As a nature volunteer you will work for a period of 6 weeks in different project sites along the Australian coast and commit yourself to the protection and conservation of natural resorts. You will make lots of great experiences and explore breathtaking regions like the Australian Outback, the beautiful white beaches or the UNESCO-world heritage Great Barrier Reef. The last stop of your journey will be in Thailand, which is regarded as one of Southeast Asia’s most diverse countries. Characterized by myth-enshrouded cities, unique nature reserves, impressive temple complexes and not least the famous Thai kitchen. You will spend 8 weeks on the beautiful Island Ko Lanta where you will dedicate your time to suffering cats and dogs which are in need of help. You daily tasks comprise healthcare, medical treatment, cleaning, feeding of animals and walks on the beach.

If desired you will have the opportunity to make individual traveling plans at the end of each project and explore the surrounding area. Of course we will help you organizing your travels and give you helpful advises about sights and worth-seeing destinations.
