An exciting opportunity to volunteer at the Iberian Wolf Recovery Centre, ensuring that these rescued wolves have a comfortable place to live.
Did you know that the Iberian Wolf is an endangered species? Especially due to the destruction of the habitats and the persecution by humans, there aren’t many of those mysterious creatures left in our forests.

Volunteers will contribute towards the conservation and protection of the wolves by participating in a wide range of day-to-day activities at the centre, which include assisting with the feeding of the animals, checking the water, maintenance of the centre’s infrastructure, fire prevention, forest cleaning and the observation of the wolves to ensure their good health and well-being.

All the volunteers will be accommodated in very comfortable and cool wooden houses at the center itself, where the local staff will be able to provide guidance at all times and help with anything volunteers need.

Except for December and January, the program is running all year round, but we really recommend you booking in advance to guarantee availability!

This is a lifetime experience in a beautiful area, that animal and nature lovers shouldn't miss!

Mafra - Wolf Conservation

What happens on your first day in Lisbon?

In the morning, the local staff lead an interactive session (at the volunteer accommodation) that includes some ice-breaker activities and a presentation that covers a lot of useful information including: an introduction to Portugal and it's culture, the volunteer experience (setting expectations), an overview of our programs, practical information for getting around the city and beyond, and safety guidelines. In the afternoon, the volunteers are escorted into the city center for a special tour. They are also able to buy bus tickets, local sim cards and exchange money if necessary, all with a local staff member for support.

The next day is free to spend exploring Lisbon, head to the LX Factory or the Timeout market or if you just want to chill on the beach take a short train ride up the coast to Cascais.
