Volunteering at Christmas

For many, the true value of the holiday season is the opportunity to share their good fortune. This is why volunteering at Christmas time is such a beloved holiday tradition. Choosing to volunteer abroad at Christmas not only gives you the chance to  get away from the usual Christmas craziness and have adventures in destinations across the world, but also to become part of a greater cause – contributing towards international conservation initiatives aimed at protecting and supporting our most vulnerable habitats. You can join programs dedicated to wildlife or marine conservation or specialise in our field guide training

We offer opportunities in the Canary Islands, Costa Rica, GreeceMexico, Peru, the Seychelles, South Africa, Thailand and Fiji.

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
