Volunteer Abroad Nature Conservation
Volunteer in nature conservation and help to preserve pristine natural areas and endangered habitats
Volunteering in nature conservation
Volunteer work in nature conservation gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in magnificent natural landscapes and to commit yourself to protecting and preserving the vulnerable environment and important habitats.
For all nature enthusiasts who want to get to know a country in a very special way and do good for the environment, volunteering in nature conservation proves to be a suitable and enriching option. As a nature conservation volunteer you can immerse yourself in breathtaking natural areas, get to know exciting cultures and make an active contribution to the protection of biological diversity – whether as a meaningful time-out of 1 or 2 weeks, as part of a semester break or in the course of an entire gap year or sabbatical.
Why nature conservation?
Forests, meadows, mountains, wetlands, dune and coastal landscapes – all over the world, you can discover diverse and extraordinary natural areas with a wide variety of plant species. These, in turn, serve as habitat and food for a fascinating animal world. However, factors such as climate change, intensive land use, the spread of invasive species or building measures mean growing threats to flora and thus to the biodiversity of many places.
In order to actively support the preservation of these areas, you can become a Natucate volunteer in various projects around the world. Find out more about where and how you can join us as a conservation volunteer.
