Animals Conservation Volunteer Program – Portugal

In this project, you will have the opportunity to directly contribute to the conservation of wild animals in the countryside. You will care for, feed, and protect different species such as deer, wild boars, eagles, lynxes, Iberian wolves, European otters, and even brown bears.

Volunteers in this project will have the chance to support a biological park that, in addition to its environmental impact, also integrates people with disabilities at the local level. The wild animals at the park are rescued from zoos, private owners, and other situations where they were mistreated.

Alongside the local staff, you will assist in most tasks related to the conservation of wild animals. You will also help take care of horses and oxen on the farm, as well as ducks, pigs, chickens, and others. Tasks include observing their behavior, conserving the forest, maintaining the habitat, feeding, among many other duties depending on the season.

The responsible organization is a social organization with a mission to contribute to local development and combat poverty by supporting and integrating people with disabilities. This organization plays a crucial role in the local community, and 43% of its staff are people with some form of disability or chronic illness.

This program is accessible to everyone but requires a certain level of physical fitness. If you join the program in winter, be prepared for lower temperatures ranging from 5-15°C and bring warm clothing. If you plan to come during the summer, when temperatures range from 25-38°C, comfortable and light clothing is recommended.
