I love this place! My cousins told me about this organization last year and have raved about their experience volunteering. http://www.endangeredspeciesinternational.org/

i volunteered for ESI and WWF and at the end ESI impressed me much better. ESI has qualified, dedicated and passion staff. ESI does not waste resources (unlike WWF!) and work very closely with indegenous people. We did a lot of field work like planting rare trees and conducting education on conservation at schools. At the office of WWF, staff was playing game online, so disgusting....

I was impressed by their commitment, strong work, and real good professional volunteers as well. They are fighting a real and urgent cause, saving biodiversity in much needed places like Africa and Asia where destruction is rampant and conservation should be a priority.

Endangered Species International surpasses many other groups in terms of their effectiveness and their willingness to take on tough projects in very remote locations to protect species and their habitat. Great group!

Thank you for the staff of Endangered Species International for helping us with our endangered school project in Oakland. It was a success and we were able to raise some money for helping them...

ESI is a truly independent group doing fantastic work in the field to protect threatened animals. I also support their full involvement of indigenous groups to save rainforest. Thank you ESI!

I was intern/volunteer and it was an honor to work with ESI. The skills and experience that I learned there were invaluable and my work so worthy. I planted more than 120 rare native trees, went to schools to educate children about protecting nature, and helped with graphic design. I saw in the field the previous planting of ESI and can see their good work (so many trees that have grown and doing well). To be part of restoring rainforest and habitat of endangered species fells so good!

I have been a volunteer 2 times and I am planing to provide my energy and skills to ESI again this year! I love their work very much in touch with local communities and saving and restoring habitats for endangered species, and not only animals but plants!

I spent 10 weeks volunteering for various activities (e.g., planting trees, helping in research for endangered animals, education..etc). Great team of people really dedicated to make a real difference in the field. I will join again end of the year.
