Wildlife Conservation Trips

The species you can assist with are diverse:

What’s more, you and your kids will learn so much about the animals that you are caring for, and this hands-on knowledge is retained so much better than classroom lessons.

Best Trips with Young Kids

If your kids are aged 5-10, we recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, where there are fantastic kids clubs, and you can all get involved in helping at a wildlife conservation project, and learn an enormous amount about the animals, such as elephants and monkeys.

Best Trips with Tweens

For kids aged 10-12, we still recommend Costa Rica and Thailand, plus India and Sri Lanka for wildlife conservation, as well as building eco-friendly stoves in Belize, Peru and India. These stoves can be completed in just a few days, and are fantastic for family bonding.

Best Trips with Teens

Animal loving teens can still help on a wildlife conservation project, perhaps turtle conservation in Costa Rica, Greece, and Turkey. Families with teens can also get immersed in the local culture and make a lasting difference on a building project, such as houses in Guatemala, Zambia and Cambodia.
