Volunteer with bears
How do I take part?
Volunteer at the biggest bear sanctuary in Europe! Help maintain and improve this essential refuge for abused bears.
Early-bird offer: we're offering a reduced-price registration fee of £245 for early registrations. Just quote VWB50 when you speak to us about registration!
Meet like-minded people, do something different and help bears. All in the beautiful Romanian countryside.
This special sanctuary in Romania provides a forever home to rescued bears who have endured the most horrendous cruelty. This is your chance to directly contribute to improving their lives and help make up for the suffering they have endured.
What will I be doing?
You will be volunteering alongside sanctuary staff and other like-minded people. You don’t need any experience to take part, just lots of energy and enthusiasm!
The volunteering could consist of: helping to plant fruit trees, building an education trail for school children, making toys for the bears or fixing the boardwalk. You’ll also get the chance to sit back, relax and watch the rescued bears you’re helping!
What did our volunteers say about the experience?
"This was my first volunteer trip and I thought long and hard about it before I applied, it was the best decision I have made and although it was my first it certainly won’t be my last."
"Seeing the bears playing in the pool with pure joy on their faces was my bear highlight, a pure breath-taking moment."
"Yes, yes and yes! The best thing I have ever done. Absolutely marvellous, spellbinding, brilliant, awesome."
