Projects Abroad Conservation & Environment Projects Abroad Reviews

Best Experience of my Life

Even though my experience with Projects Abroad was sadly over a year ago, I still think of it every day. It was the best 3 months of my life and has changed me as a person (as cliche as that is) forever. I made memories of a lifetime and I am desperate to travel to so many destinations as soon as I can. Projects Abroad was such a great way to travel as I got to be a part of something and make the most of my time away by doing my bit to help conserve marine life. I wish I could be back there every day ... But for now I have my amazing photos and memories to keep me going until next time

I participated twice

I volunteered as part of a conservation project in Fiji in 2014 and 2016, one month each. Both times I had an amazing time, met people who I‘m still friends with now, and had the chance to help with scientific research that directly fuelled multiple published scientific research papers.

I had the chance to leave for Ecuador and to participate on a program in the Galapagos Islands with Projects Abroad, I stayed in the locality for six weeks, hosted by a very kind and very welcoming family. I helped an environmental project which is very important for the country. Projects Abroad it is a serious organization and organized, always available for volunteers present in the country .

Loved my nature conservation project

Everything was very well planned but we still had much freedom in choosing our activities. I’ve made many friends there as well! I highly recommend the project in Thailand. The price was quite high, but the experience was well worth it.

Incredible Project

I participated on the conservation project in the Galapagos and it was such an incredible experience! I stayed with a local family for 3.5 months and had plenty time off to explore the surrounding islands.
