Millennials are the new heroes in wildlife conservation, says Volunteer Africa


On the ground in South Africa – one of the three hotspots for volunteers – and at the forefront of facilitating volunteer travel for wildlife conservation – Volunteer Southern Africa confirms these global research findings.

“We have hosted over 9,500 volunteers from 25 countries – and 81% of them are millennials. These young wildlife champions have helped rehabilitate over 1,100 animals, donating countless hours of work and by contributing significant tourism spending to various wildlife conservation projects through South Africa, while enjoying an unforgettable travel experience, as evidenced by the more than 850 of our volunteers who come back time and time again, ”says Earl Smith, CEO of Volunteer South Africa.

“Volunteering for wildlife conservation can be a powerful force in conservation – ensuring that wildlife conservation sanctuaries are no longer constrained by a few hands and limited budgets. Volunteers contribute much-needed hours of work and funds to help cover the vast expenses of protecting our wildlife. “

“Conserving our wildlife requires a global effort,” says Smith. “Volunteering for wildlife conservation is a vast new resource for conservation projects through South Africa. We take great pride in recruiting, welcoming and caring for our volunteers in a professional and ethical manner while they stay in a wildlife conservation program that ignites their passion.

“Meet some of these Millennials – the new heroes of wildlife conservation – at and discover how volunteer wildlife conservation programs are changing their lives, while making a real contribution to the global effort to conserve our wildlife. “
