Volunteer with whales

If you would like to spend your volunteering days monitoring the movement and behaviour of some of the ocean's most beautiful mammals, we have just the programmes for you.

Sadly, there are many issues afflicting the natural lives of Whales and you will be helping eradicate those to give them the most positive future possible.

Your volunteering duties will range from collecting photo and behavioural data, to sample collection. Splitting your time between sea and land operations, you will gain  valuable experience in many aspects of marine conservation.

We can assure you that your time and effort is not just a drop in the ocean, your work will be a massive contribution to the conservation and will make a difference for years to come.

Our structured and safe whale projects, make volunteering the ideal way to travel for the 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 destinations as a group.
