For over 30 years, Gapforce has been committed to developing rewarding and safe volunteering and conservation programs. It was through this desire that we set up Greenforce.
Greenforce was established in 1997 to develop conservation programs that would have a positive impact on the world. Through socially and environmentally responsible projects, set up by our own highly experienced team, we constantly sought opportunities to support at risk wildlife and communities around the world.
Today, the Greenforce legacy lives on, and has grown to become part of our central vision at Gapforce - providing overseas conservation and volunteering projects in the most stunning locations across the globe. Our wildlife and marine conservation programs continue to run in South Africa, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Thailand and more.
We can't do this alone though. We need volunteers on every one of our projects to get the job done and keep the projects going. You can volunteer with animals, helping maintain animal conservation or marine conservation projects, or support local people through teaching or building projects. So, if you're looking to volunteer abroad, Gapforce can offer you a huge variety of safe, rewarding and exciting volunteering placements overseas!

A History of Greenforce
As a result of the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, Section 3c stated that host countries should undertake base line biodiversity inventories to determine areas in need of protection. If a signatory is unable to do this survey, they can request assistance from international aid agencies. It was against this backdrop that Greenforce was created, acting as one of these agencies.
Greenforce offered a long term commitment to at-risk regions to establish and implement sustainable communities. Our conservation programs continue to offer volunteers the opportunity to work alongside scientists and leaders, making a real difference and further developing their careers in conservation.
