The Whole Wild World

Short Term Volunteering Abroad

Keen to spend your days exploring some of the world’s most breathtaking, exhilarating and remote wildernesses?

GVI gives individuals, families or groups the chance to make the most of their time abroad, with various short term program options. Even if you only have a week or two, you can still have a meaningful experience abroad and make a lasting impact on vital wildlife or marine conservation work. 

We offer short term volunteer projects across five across five continents – Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and Latin America. Or you can combine several short term projects to create unique multi-country combos.  

Our projects are driven by a core mission: positive impact. GVI is committed to sustainable, meaningful change alongside both our local project participants and our global partners.
