Welcome International Volunteers

Our first adventurers arrived on Monday, and got right into the thick of things with a tour of the Habitat and lectures from our Conservation Coordinator. We’d like to welcome Chu Pei Lin and Lu Wan Shan from Taiwan, Judi Tordo from Maine, and Karissa Amador from California, and wish you a very exciting time with us.

The International Volunteer Programme allows people (18+) to stay in Cochrane with homestay families for at least two weeks while helping out at the Habitat and learning about polar bear ecology, conservation and climate change. This is a wonderful opportunity to understand how a sanctuary is run and getting to know the bears in our care at a deeper level.
