Wildlife Rescue

Join Wildlife Rescue for an unforgettable volunteer adventure in Portugal's scenic countryside. Here you will engage directly in the rehabilitation and release of wild animals, making a real difference in conservation - a perfect mix of hands-on wildlife care, environmental learning, and outdoor excitement. Immerse yourself in nature and be part of a passionate team dedicated to wildlife preservation

Wildlife Rescue is a program that aims to help with rescued animals that are in rehabilitation at a Wild Animal Recovery Center located in the countryside of Portugal.

In this program, you’ll play an active role in the rehabilitation and release of these animals back into their natural habitat, contributing directly to their recovery and freedom.

Engage in tasks throughout the year, peaking from March to August, that include animal care, habitat construction, and facility upkeep, all under the guidance of experienced veterinarians.

The program is not just about hands-on care; it’s a comprehensive educational journey. You’ll be involved in environmental education initiatives and contribute to important wildlife studies led by various universities.

As you immerse yourself in this dynamic environment, be prepared to adapt to changing weather and environmental conditions, which add an exciting and unpredictable element to your conservation efforts.

This is your opportunity to make a tangible impact on wildlife preservation while developing invaluable skills in a stunning natural setting
