International Volunteer Programme

Want to make a difference?

Looking for an opportunity to be part of something meaningful while learning about wildlife conservation and getting valuable field experience?
You’ve knocked on the right door!
At the Habitat we believe that polar bears belong in the wild. However if they do need a hand, we are dedicated to giving them our very best, and you can be an integral part of our support team.

Step 1: Read about our Expeditions

Download our brochure to learn more about the International Volunteer Programme. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Step 2: Apply

Fill in the form to let us know you are interested. There is no commitment on your part.

Step 3: We’ll contact you

We will let you know if there are any places available for your preferred Expedition dates. Once you’ve made a US$200 non-refundable deposit, we’ll give you a Volunteer Guide with all the specifics about your Expedition, including policies, procedures, and checklists.

Step 4: Join us!

Go through the checklists and forms that we provide, book your flights, pack your things. We look forward to welcoming you to an adventure of a lifetime.
