Argentina: Buenos Aires
2-4 weeks, 5-8 weeks, 9-12 weeks
Typical Duration of Program
Volunteer abroad in Argentina. Volunteers at the Buenos Aires Zoo will work for at least four hours a day. Most of the day will be spent assisting the zookeepers with care of the animals, cleaning habitats and organizing conservation projects. Recent conservation projects include:
* Rescuing and conservation of endangered birds
* Protection of the Aguara Guazu (endangered insect)
* General work in the Zoos in Buenos Aires and Temaiken
* Protection and conservation of the Andes Condor (with possibility to travel to Bariloche)
Our Argentina programs are based in Buenos Aires, the elegant and energy filled capital. Buenos Aires shares many of the problems other Latin American capitals are experiencing: poverty, pollution, lack of infrastructure, and unemployment. Volunteers work with local organizations devoted to fighting poverty. Volunteers can work with at-risk children, in soup kitchens or health education campaigns.
No qualifications required.

There is no typical international volunteer. We work with people from all over the world and a variety of backgrounds. We have placed volunteers ranging in age from 18-81. Successful volunteers are flexible, upbeat, energetic and inquisitive.
International Volunteers is the volunteer branch of ELI Abroad, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, founded in 2001, that partners with organizations from around the world making a difference in their communities. We work closely with these groups to ensure that our volunteers get meaningful experiences at reasonable prices. We have something for everyone: whether you want to teach in Ghana, work in an orphanage in Nepal, animal rescue in the rainforest of Ecuador, medical clinic in South India, or study in a university in Buenos Aires.
