  18. Volunteer in Alaska Located in “The Great Land” this program is a unique opportunity to experience true Northern culture. Alaska has been deemed “The Last Frontier” because it is a place where you can still see wilderness in many forms; many people feel that they are standing on the edge of discovery when they visit Alaska for the first time. Alaska is home to more than half of the world’s glaciers, the tallest mountain in North America, Mt. McKinley, is one-third the size of the entire United States of America, is the only state to have borders on three different seas, is home to an abundance of wildlife such a grizzly bears, moose, caribou, wolves, mountain goats, bald eagles, whales, and so much more. Alaska is rugged and steeped in the history and tradition of more than 10 distinct Native Alaskan Cultures; it is one of the only places left where many individuals still choose a subsistence lifestyle. Alaska is the perfect place to spend time volunteering because just being in Alaska brings one a sense of truly being a part of nature and all of her raw energy and thrills. Volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in environmental field work of varying degrees, including trail maintenance and organic farming, research, conservation education, community outreach, park maintenance, plant conservation, and environmental activism.

  20. Volunteer in South AfricaAs a volunteer, you will be involved in every aspect of managing and maintaining a wildlife sanctuary. Out on the reserve, nothing stands between you and the wildlife. Many species of plains game will gaze quietly as you go about your work. Maintaining a reserve in optimum condition requires constant vigilance. In addition to ensuring a pristine habitat for the wildlife, you will be preserving a type of vegetation that is increasingly threatened by agriculture, forestry and urban development. The wildlife sanctuary is located on a rare veld (bush) type called bankenveld, recognized for its high biodiversity. Less than 1% of bankenveld is conserved under formal government programs, so this private conservation initiative is of critical importance. By joining our program, you will be helping to preserve species and habitats in one of the most biologically diverse areas of the world.

  21. Volunteer in New Zealand This program is located in one of the most picturesque cities in the world. You will join a small team of volunteers working to preserve, monitor, and re-establish our natural environment here in the Wellington region and beyond. Prepare yourself to encounter the challenges of 'hands on' conservation and environmental restoration work in our native forests, wildlife reserves, rugged coastlines, and offshore islands.

  22. Species extinction is likely to occur for up to a century after a tropical forest has been logged, according to recent studies. Rain forest fragmentation will cause future extinctions of many African primates
