About the Program in Australia at the Wildlife Sanctuary

With your assistance, you play a meaningful and active role in preserving and increasing populations of rare and endangered Australian flora and fauna. This program provides you the opportunity to help by contributing your time and efforts in helping a wildlife sanctuary on their day to day tasks who house some of Australian fauna who are facing extinction or are a threatened species. You can also help the homeless in Sydney in the Food Outreach program.

On your first day you will start your program with an introduction to the area, accommodation, facilities and a cultural introduction.

GapXperience is a gap & volunteer company with 14 years of experience and over 200 programs worldwide. Our prices are some of the lowest of similar programs without reducing the quality, support and services. And with us there is only one price to pay, no extra charges!

We see volunteering and meaningful travel as an essential part of personal and career development, playing a key role in life and work related skills. We believe that by volunteering, experiencing, living & working side-by-side with local communities in developing countries, participants can come away with a greater understanding of the global community, the cultural diversity and the challenges that developing countries face.
