GVI’s volunteers play a vital part in the success and long-term sustainability of our wildlife conservation programmes. Without volunteer support, our partners would not have the manpower to conduct their research, protect endangered species, map habitats and educate local communities on how to look after their unique environments. All data collected by our volunteers is used by our partners and local governments to help improve environmental policies and ensure the continued survival of the unique biodiversity found in each country.
