Brief overview

The Animal Conservation project in Argentina needs volunteers to support its conservation park for neglected or illegally held animals. The focus of the project is animal conservation but also includes environmental care and sustainability, education and animal rehabilitation. Volunteers can assist with a range of tasks such as the maintenance of the park, animal care and promotional activities outside the park. Other activities include reparation projects, taking part in recreational activities trips and maintaining the atmosphere of the park. Volunteers are given the opportunity to work with everyday tasks based on their personal interests.
