We are often asked about volunteer opportunities that can help with rhino conservation. We do not offer direct field volunteer opportunities, but have participated in a number of projects in the past, so have placed links to the projects we rated on this page.

If you have participated in a field project, and were impressed with the project coordination, your work and feel that you made a real difference to the project then please send us an e-mail via our contacts page to share your experience.

In addition, we have occasional volunteer opportunities in the UK to help out at some of our events.
