About the project
Wolves are under threat in Portugal due to habitat loss and human encounters. Volunteer at a wolf sanctuary, home to 13 wolves, helping them to achieve a life as close to the wild as possible. Many of the wolves have been rescued from zoos, where they were living in tiny cages. This huge sanctuary in the National Park provides a safe haven for them after years of mistreatment.
Volunteers help with food preparation, feeding, monitoring and vegetation clearing. It is an amazing way to get close to the wolves on a daily basis, and make a genuine contribution to their welfare.
Accommodation and food
You will live at the sanctuary in a small cabin. The cabins are very nicely decorated and are a very comfortable place to stay. The project is self catered and you will prepare your food with other volunteers.
Our staff will get you fully prepared beforehand and will be able to advise and help throughout. Once in Portugal you will be well looked after by the project staff, who will meet you at the airport and get you settled in.
