Volunteer with Penguins
Care for Penguins
Volunteer with penguins on your gap year and you could help an ever declining population of penguin species. With the exception of African and Galapagos penguins, all species of penguin are found in the Southern Hemisphere. Therefore these projects are ideal for gappers who have both a love of penguins and the want to experience their gap year in either Australia or, for the more adventurous gap year, Antarctica.
Care for penguins and save them from their ever increasing list of threats, including climate change, commercial fishing, pollution and more. Climate change specifically is having a devastating effect on penguin communities as finding food sources and safe breeding spots are declining. Volunteer with penguins and you could take part in internationally recognised research involving penguin rehabilitation and environmental studies. Volunteers are also encouraged to get involved in day to day tasks such preparing food, cleaning pens and more.
If you wish to volunteer with penguins on your gap year then check out our product listings and contact someone who can help you.
