Oceans2Earth strives to assist with local solutions to global problems. O2E was founded in Melbourne, Australia in 2010 for the purpose of providing resources and financial assistance to animal welfare and conservation projects including elephant sanctuary land in Kenya, cat and dog rescue in Africa and community recycled product projects in Asia and Africa. The O2E Foundation aims to facilitate people’s awareness of the impacts of animal tourism, trade and human intervention on the welfare, sustainability and general health of wildlife populations.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is about giving your time to partake in activities that benefit others.

If you feel the need to contribute to something incredibly worthwhile then volunteering is for you. Just be passionate about helping other people and nature and whatever your interests are, you will find something that suits. The range of O2E projects is vast.

Rewarding, exciting...
Your decision to volunteer will impact a community more than you will ever know as the benefits for the community you visit are great. However, the benefits for the volunteer are endless. You will have the experience of a lifetime - the hardest part will be coming home again!

Whichever program you choose, you will be exposed to a different culture, gaining job and life skills and meeting a whole new circle of friends in what may be one of the most enjoyable, challenging, memorable and life-changing experiences you will ever undertake.

The rewards are abundant:

Ø Live in a foreign country
Ø Discover a different culture & lifestyle
Ø Gain valuable new skills
Ø Learn a new language
Ø Build your CV
Ø Make new friends from all around the world
Ø Broaden your horizons
Ø Widen your comfort zone
Ø Contribute to a worthy cause
Ø Become more independent
Ø Experience an adventure of a lifetime
Ø Experience new food
Ø Become a broader minded person and learn about other people
Ø Make a real difference to a less prosperous community

Volunteers have the unique opportunity to be involved in a project from the grassroots level and actually become a member of the local community. Volunteers often create long-term friendships within the community and take home with them new ways of living, often changing careers or starting a new hobby such as wildlife photography, canoeing, scuba diving, first aid or sustainable living. Volunteering could change your future.
