We are often asked this question and the most important thing to remember is that our projects are not substandard or different to those offered on other websites by volunteer organisations. The reason they are cheaper with us is because (unlike other volunteer organisations) we do not take any commission from volunteering fees, as we want our projects to receive 100% of your donations.
We check every single one of our projects before they feature on the Wildweb to ensure that they are ethical. As we DO NOT support; the mistreatment of animals, keeping animals captive unnecessarily, profiteering from animals, unnecessarily breeding or humanization, canned hunting or any project that is not productive for wildlife conservation.
The Weekly donation is the financial contribution the volunteer project asks for in return for each week of volunteering. Usually this covers the cost of your food and accommodation during your stay and supports their conservation work. Although the specifics of what is included differs from project to project. You can contact the project directly or send us an email if you would like more details as to what is covered by your chosen projects weekly donation.
Usually our projects do not offer airport transfers. However if you are worried about getting to your volunteer project, we offer a Trip planning service where we can work with you to organize all your travel arrangements and logistics.
Unfortunately at the moment we do not process the payments for our projects. This is something that you will have to arrange between yourself and your chosen project. Some of our projects ask for a deposit or payment in advanced and others ask for you to pay upon arrival.
Visa and vaccination requirements differ depending on which country you are going to, how long you are staying for and what you will be doing at your chosen project. We recommend that you contact your country of destinations Foreign Commonwealth Office to inquire about Visa's and visit your Doctor or GP about what vaccinations you will need.
If our members encounter a problem whilst volunteering, we are always here for support and also our travel partner’s offer 24/7 emergency support phone line which you can call from anywhere in the world.
Many of our projects are located in some really remote places, often without internet or even electricity. Because of this some don’t check their emails everyday and could take up to 2 weeks to respond. If you have waited over 2 weeks without a response please contact the Wildweb team so we can get hold of them for you.
