Rewilding volunteer database

Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and become an active rewilder?
As a volunteer you can make an invaluable contribution to rewilding efforts in Europe.

Finding a rewilding match in the Volunteer Database

From analyzing camera-trap images to hands-on field work removing barbed wire: there are many ways in which you can make an important rewilding contribution as a volunteer.

With the Rewilding Volunteer Database, we bring together organizations and people who are looking to contribute in a meaningful way. It is accessible to the local teams in our ten rewilding landscapes and our network of more than 85 rewilding initiatives spread across Europe. This way, these initiatives can directly select the most suitable candidates from the database if volunteering opportunities arise.

Or volunteer in the European Young Rewilders team

As a young professional or scholar from any kind of background, you can take an active role in supporting the new generation leading and taking rewilding forward! If you are interested, we invite you to contribute your knowledge and time to the European Young Rewilders.

By joining the team of online volunteers you will be supporting the development and functioning of the network, depending on your interests and capabilities. In addition, you can also become the national contact person for the European Young Rewilders in your country and facilitate the local engagement of young rewilders.


Submit your application to Rewilding Europe’s Volunteer Database


The Rewilding Volunteer Database is an open database for those interested in volunteering at various rewilding initiatives across Europe. The minimum duration of placement is 3 months. Agreements about potential remuneration have to be made directly with the hosting organisation.

If there is a match between an initiative’s requirements and your desires, they will contact you and you can directly start arrangements for your stay. As we share information with multiple rewilding initiatives you might be contacted by one or several organisations. Please note, that it’s your own responsibility to assure sufficient information and solid agreements; many educational institutes provide checklists for a proper preparation of an internship (abroad). Rewilding Europe cannot be held accountable for contracts that are not with Rewilding Europe itself but with other initiatives.

As we receive many applications for volunteering and internships, we cannot guarantee a placement for everyone interested. In case you don’t receive a response from any project within 6 weeks following your application, you should conclude that there are unfortunately no positions available. In that case, you could still consider joining the team of online volunteers for the European Young Rewilders.
