Sabbatical – Taking a career break
A sabbatical is a temporary break from work which may last from several weeks up to a year and even longer. When pressure of work leads to strain and distress, such a break may be a suitable means to prevent health risks: to distance oneself, gather strength and return back to your job full of new energy and motivation – something that not only you but also your employer will benefit from. Especially traveling abroad and voluntary commitment are popular ways to spend a sabbatical. At Natucate we combine these aspects and enable you to experience an unforgettable career break in nature.

Volunteering during your break of work: If you want to use your sabbatical to give something back and to become involved in meaningful projects you can support fascinating nature and wildlife conservation projects all over the world as a voluntary helper in one of Natucate's volunteer opportunities. Protecting whale sharks in the Maldives, tracking elephants in Namibia, taking care of rescue horses in Canada or conserving pristine environments in Australia and New Zealand – your helping hands will be needed in many places on our planet. During your sabbatical as a volunteer you get the chance to explore magnificent landscapes, meet people from all over the world and gain hands-on experience in environmental protection, animal welfare and species conservation.
Further education during your break from work
