As a volunteer in our wolf conservation project in Portugal, you will live and work on the grounds of a wolf sanctuary, located approx. 30 km north of the country’s vibrant capitol of Lisbon. The sanctuary provides a safe haven for rescued Iberian wolves that were born and/or kept illegally in captivity and are therefore no longer able to live in the wild.
You and your international group of volunteers will assist the team on site with different tasks. These mainly include forest maintenance on the sanctuary grounds and maintaining the infrastructure of the shelter but also feeding the wolves, checking the animals’ water supply and performing monitoring activities. Most of the work is physically quite demanding, but yet extremely rewarding. Note: As you will be part of an ethical conservation project, you won’t be able to touch the wolves.
Throughout your time in the project, you will be accommodated in a small wooden cabin with a dormitory (which you will share with other project participants) as well as single rooms, a shared bathroom, a living room and a kitchen in which you can prepare your daily meals. These are not included in the price, but once a week a staff member takes you to a nearby supermarket where you can shop for groceries. Your off time – usually the weekends – can be used for exciting trips together with your team members to explore Lisbon, the Algarve and other great places in Portugal.
