Unique chance

Our team multi-cultural and experienced team consists of passionate people from various different fields: Wilderness and wildlife specialists, nature conservationists, researchers and scientists, tourism experts, marketing and business professionals, legal advisors and Wilderness advocates. Therefore, prior experience in the field of nature conservation is not a prerequisite, let us know what You can bring to the table!

If you are up for a wild adventure, don’t hesitate, send us your application! Volunteers live in the beautiful UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Lungau in the Austrian Alps and help with projects like LIFEstockProtect, Centralparks and BEECH POWER, Biodiversität im Wald and Let´s get wild, among many other interesting projects. Besides experiencing the day-to-day activities of a nature conservation NGO, you will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors in the Austrian Alps and further. These opportunities offer significant financial support from the European Union to cover your expenses.

I did not want to miss out on my time I had as a volunteer at the European Wilderness Society. I made a lot of great experiences, learned many new skills and grew personally.
