Volunteer with penguins

Would you like to help reverse the decline of seabird populations? Would you like to learn more about Penguins and their life-cycle? Then we have just the project for you.

Established 50 years ago, this amazing project helps more than 2,000 seabirds a year, and you could be one of the team helping to continue their good work. Your day to day duties would range from preparing their meals, to administering medication.

It really is a wonderful project, in the most magnificent location. Your work will go towards ensuring another 50 years of conservation for these beautiful seabirds.

Our programmes start on Sunday of every week throughout the year and you can choose to join us from 1-12 weeks.

Our structured and safe penguin projects, make volunteering the ideal way to travel for first time and solo travellers. Our pre-departure buddy lists and dedicated country Facebook groups allow you to talk with everyone going at the same time as well as previous participants. Volunteering is the perfect way to meet like-minded people and allows you to explore a new and exciting destination as a group.
