Description

The O2E Founders are animal lovers and committed volunteers. They founded and established the organisation in Melbourne, Australia, having seen firsthand that volunteer recruitment agencies were not always aware if the projects they supported had the best interests of animals and environment in mind. Instead, unethical and harmful behaviour including elephant riding, unsustainable tree nursery projects and the consumption of scarce community resources by the presence of volunteers were often the result. Local wildlife communities and the animals’ environments were also clearly disadvantaged. For this reason, we created our Oceans 2 Earth Ethical Standards and the Wildlife Code and measure all potential projects by these policies prior to partnering with them.

Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers offers volunteering and adventure travel experiences for ethically minded animal and conservation lovers looking for the trip of a lifetime.

In creating Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers, the O2E founders challenge and engage individuals to contribute to meaningful animal welfare and conservation projects. As wildlife carers and avid animal welfare and rights campaigners, they uphold a vision to promote ethical volunteering as an advisable travel alternative.

We believe the way to solve the issues of animal mistreatment and environmental destruction and degradation is to provide people with the opportunity to contribute and interact so that they may develop their own personal culture of responsibility and global conservation. People exposed first hand to challenging bio diverse environmental issues are more likely to draw on those experiences and continue to make a positive impact once they arrive home. 

Oceans 2 Earth recognise that individuals really can make a difference. However small the work effort is from one person, if you combine the actions of many people as a whole, the result can become quite significant. By bringing like-minded and ethically conscious animal lovers together, Oceans 2 Earth believe that there is no limit to what we can achieve. 

Our Mission

Promote environmental sustainability and to be accountable for our impact on the environment.

Take action and find solutions to improve the natural, bio-diverse way of life for all. Promote the ethical treatment and natural living ecology of all animals.

Expose and educate volunteers to the plight of animals ill-affected by conflict or interaction with man, encouraging them to take action and find solutions to these global issues.

2023 at Amazon Animal Sanctuary

The low ratings below are for Oceans 2 Earth, NOT the Animal Rescue Center. Working with the animals was delightful but we had a couple of 'unpleasant' surprises that could have been avoided if Oceans 2 Earth had told us more about what the experience was like. 1st- we needed to bring our own ...

2024 at Aussie Wildlife Homestay

I had the best time staying with Peter and Caroline! In my 3 weeks stay I got to experience the Aussie Wildlife on close hand. I spend lots of time with the roos and wombats both feeding, playing and cuddling. There are also plenty of other animals to talk to during the day. The rooms and house were ...

2022 at Aussie Wildlife Homestay

The company did their job well. I was supposed to travel 3 years ago, before Covid. When things finally settled, I got back in touch and everything went on ...
I stayed at the Australian endangered species and conservation care (aka. Safe haven) facility for 3 weeks. Had the most amazing time caring for the Australian wildlife and leaning so much about the animals as well as the Australian culture in general. A wonderful crew run the place with Tina as ...
I really enjoyed my time at the endangered species conservation project! The people were really nice and thankful. In the morning we used to clean the pens and in the evening we fed the animals which was a lot of fun. I had an amazing time ...
