Over het programma

The Project
This private and licensed carer undertakes wildlife and domestic animal rescue, rehabilitation, permanent care and facilitates the re-homing and adoption of these animals.

Since it receives no recurrent funding from governments, the shelters relies on Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers to provide hands on and financial assistance to keep it operating. 

The Location

Located in a small rural community in the east part of the Riverina on a working farm. The Riverina is an agricultural region of south-western New South Wales, Australia, just near the Victorian border. The Riverina is distinguished from other Australian regions by the combination of flat plains, warm to hot climate and an ample supply of water for irrigation. This combination has allowed the Riverina to develop into one of the most productive and agriculturally diverse areas of Australia. Bordered on the south by the state of Victoria and on the east by the Great Dividing Range, the Riverina covers those areas of New South Wales in the Murray and Murrumbidgee drainage zones to their confluence in the west. This is a farm-style homestay, living and working hands on with the project hosts on a daily basis. 

Hands-on with animals? Every day. Comforts of home level: medium. Program starts: any day of the week.

Our Volunteers

Volunteers are involved in the care of both native wildlife and domestic animals and their release. A typical day involves daily feeding and watering routines including bottle feeding the younger animals, throwing pellets to the older kangaroos, intensive care, cleaning enclosures, building cages & enclosures, building and mending fences, playing with the animals, exercising animals undergoing rehabilitation, wild animal rescue and release, domestic animal rescue, care & rehabilitation, domestic animal re-homing & adoption.

Over de organisatie

Oceans 2 Earth Volunteers is a non-profit organisation that was founded for the purpose of providing resources and financial assistance to animal welfare and conservation

Ontmoet je organisatie

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 Forest Elephant Sanctuary

I ventured by myself on this trip and found it very rewarding. I was part of a group of 20 people where we worked together on many various tasks from carting watermelons, to cutting bananas or grass to visiting a school for the day. We had lots of time to also explore the park or walk a dog or ...
