Wildlife volunteering programs offer a great way for someone to experience the rich biodiversity of India. Firsthand, on the ground and out of the relative safety and comfort of a tourist vehicle. They provide you with a wonderful insight into the various wildlife conservation and research activities going on in the country. So its time for you to get off that couch, turn Animal Planet off and go live you own wildlife adventure.

The following are some out of the various of the volunteering programs available in the country. The list is by no means comprehensive, i'll keep it updated whenever i come across a new program. You can also help by leaving a comment about any program that is not there in the list and i'll update the post accordingly.

Do keep in mind that these programs are not 'mere' holidays. Some level of physical fitness is required for long walks in the jungle and there are always some dangers involved in working in the forests with wild animals around.
