Wildlife Internships Abroad

Wildlife internships provide personal and professional development through hands-on field experience. GVI offers international wildlife conservation internships and wildlife conservation volunteer programs that amplify your access to careers in the industry.

Whether or not you desire a long-term career in wildlife conservation, our internships will equip you with practical, unique experiences that will positively impact your future employability.

GVI Interns work on a South African game reserve, researching big cats and mega-fauna; assist organizations to protect the endangered jaguar and turtles in Costa Rica; conduct biodiversity research on environmental sustainability in Thailand or the Seychelles; or, help manage elephants in their natural habitat with the local community in Thailand. Apart from these internships we now also have a range of programs specifically for students looking to travel during their spring break; join an alternative springbreak program or join a gap year volunteering program abroad and make a real difference in the world. Take a look this page to find out why you should intern abroad and what you can gain through this valuable experience.
