YOUTH

Our wildlife projects for the youth!

We provide wildlife conservation assignments tailored to young people. The emphasis is on empowerment and raising awareness of animal welfare in the community. More hands-on work is carried out on a daily basis, supervised by professional animal caretakers, such as restoring enclosures, studying behaviour, caring for animals, etc. This is an opportunity for young people to discover a new culture, understand the issues and learn different methods of animal protection

FAMILIES

Our wildlife projects for families!

Wildlife projects are also ideal for family trips, raising awareness of wildlife protection challenges for young and old participants alike. Different assignments are allocated according to each person's skills, ensuring that each age group benefits from a valuable experience. On these projects, children are also given a safe space and there is specific supervision adapted to families.

IN A GROUP OR SOLO

Our wildlife projects for a group or solo!

Many wildlife programmes are adapted to groups, especially the refuge assignments, which feature a succession of team workcamps. Wildlife projects are also an opportunity to go it alone, to join a multicultural team where different conservation techniques will be put into practice in the field! You will never really be alone, constantly surrounded by other participants, the local population and the team on site.

Wildlife projects with Freepackers: definition

Freepackers offers a range of assignments that allow you to travel while taking action for the protection of species around the world. This can mean contributing to the conservation of a particular species or a group of species, depending on our local partners’ projects. The wildlife projects enable people to learn the right conservation techniques to ensure a healthy coexistence between humans and animals.

The wildlife projects are also a forum for dialogue with the local community, including workshops to raise awareness of the issues related to the preservation of species in the region. It’s the perfect mix between wilderness experience and cultural immersion. You will also be part of a multicultural team, with participants from all over the world coming to the project with the same objective of discovery and commitment. The team is specialised in conservation issues and will tell you everything you need to know to make your project a success!
