VOLUNTEERING

WITH FAUNA IN FOCUS

Fauna in Focus is a small startup non-profit, with BIG PLANS. Do do this we rely on help and support from a continual stream of skilled and passionate volunteers. Our volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds. One thing they have in common is a passion for hard work for a good cause. Volunteers come to share their skills and expertise, develop their own professional portfolio, and contribute in a socially and environmentally responsible way to wildlife conservation in Cambodia.

We don’t support voluntarism in the traditional sense, and we certainly don’t ask any money from those willing to help us out. However we do only accept volunteers who are able to commit a significant portion of their time, and who come with well developed skills and expertise. Think you got what it takes? Let us know!

Cooper

I’ve really enjoyed my time at Fauna in Focus. I’ve had the chance to meet a lot of amazing people, spend time exploring a great city, and be a part of some truly impactful work.

In my time with FIF, I assisted with the design of an interactive elephant exhibition, new t-shirts, iconography and graphics for education programs and more. There’s always something new and different to work on.
