Conservation travellers come from all backgrounds, nationalities and ages. There are no requirements for qualifications or past experience and it's not about where you come from and what you are doing in your life right now. It's all about a love of wildlife and a wish to learn and make a positive difference. Apart from being animal lovers - obviously! - people take on conservation placements for all sorts of reasons and under many different circumstances: Students who are pursuing a career in veterinary medicine or zoology, for example, will learn a lot of career-related skills, while life-long wildlife enthusiasts will have the chance the get up close and behind the scenes in wildlife reserves and research projects. Maybe you are even thinking of embarking on a career break and want to explore life as a wildlife ranger or field biologist? There is a lot you can get out of conservation travel!
Gap Year & Students
Are you currently in school or planning a gap year? You can join a conservation project during your year out or in your summer break, and it's a great way to gain some practical experience while also exploring an exciting country! There are a lot of skills you'll learn on your placement, from technical veterinary skills to planning, budgeting and cross-cultural communication - It looks great on your university application!
Career Break & Sabbatical
Whether you are looking for longer stay during a career break abroad, or just a holiday with a difference - joining a wildlife conservation project provides an eye-opening change from a 9-5 job, an opportunity to learn about African wildlife and an unforgettable adventure!
Conservation is a team effort, so the projects are perfect for groups - whether you want to organise a field trip for a school or university, an incentive experience for great employees or just go with a group of friends. ACE put together bespoke itineraries to ensure each group gets the most out of their experience. Speak to one of our team if you would like to get some ideas!
