Animal rehabilitation projects are essential in order to keep eco-systems all around the world functioning. Approximately a quarter of the world’s animals are threatened with extinction. That is a massive amount of mammals, reptiles, amphibians that need your time and help.
Wildlife rescue centre volunteers don’t need to be from any particular background or have a particular type of skill set. A huge love of animals of all shapes and sizes and the willingness to get stuck into a project and give it all you have are the only essential skills you need.
Animal rehabilitation could mean assisting injured cheetahs in the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre in South Africa to helping local animal centres with dogs and cats that have run away from home or have been left behind by their families. The possibilities are endless and chances are there is at least one wildlife rescue centre in need of volunteers wherever you find yourself on your gap year. If this sounds like something that interests you, check out our animal rehabilitation products.
