Frontier works to conserve the world's most endangered wildlife and threatened habitats and to build sustainable livelihoods for marginalised and under resourced communities in the world's poorest countries.
Across the world habitats and wildlife are under threat from human encroachment and illegal activities such poaching. Volunteers are vital to the success of wildlife conservation programmes that aim to protect endangered species, map habitats and work with local communities to ensure conservation efforts are maintainable and beneficial to the local people.
Volunteers that join projects conduct research essential to producing invaluable baseline data and monitoring changes in biodiversity. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn surveying techniques, observe wildlife in its native habitat, and make a meaningful contribution to the protection of threatened ecosystems. These surveys can subsequently inform environmental policies, educate communities and help create real impact for conservation.
The ocean covers more than 70 percent of the earth's surface and is one of the most biodiverse places on the planet and is vital to the survival and health of the world's ecosystems. The ocean is also an irreplaceable primary source of food and income for many communities around the globe. Yet harmful illegal fishing practices and overfishing have damaged reefs and endangered marine species.
Frontier's marine conservation projects aim to protect marine ecosystems by mapping habitats and educating local communities helping to implement sustainable coastal management. Volunteers joining marine projects conduct essential research into reef health and species populations that can inform environmental policy, and help restore and protect marine biodiversity for future generations.
