Join our team!

We are so grateful for the support that volunteers have selflessly given us so far, it is truly heartwarming to see so many people believing in our cause. Those who have helped have at least two things in common: a passion for wildlife and the willingness to do make a difference.

We are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers of all ages, nationalities and background. The upside of being a small charity is that we all get to know each other and quickly feel part of a dynamic team, spread across the world but united around our love for animals. 

One guaranteed support you can give to us is by organising a fundraising event. But please, have fun doing it!

We have several volunteer positions available, please make yourself familiar with them and do not hesitate to contact Geraldine should you have any questions or would like to apply.

Thank you in advance for your support!
