This Animal Sanctuary Travel Insurance policy covers volunteering in a facility where animals are kept for their own protection. We can cover volunteer work in an Animal Sanctuary for wild and domestic animals.

The Sanctuaries that focus on animals aim to offer a safe and comfortable haven for animals that have been abused, have been injured, have been orphaned, or have been captured and sold.

Animal Sanctuaries do not sell, buy or trade animals, but rather acquire them from donations. Their main purpose is taking care of animals with a difficult past.

Please Note: Our online policy does not cover Direct Contact with Wild Animals - it will instead covers observation work or helping with other tasks such as cleaning and preparing food.

If you will have Direct Contact with Wild Animals, please call us on 0800 047 5065 (FREE) or 01273 773 017 or email us at info@jsinsurance.co.uk for a quote.

Excess Waiver

By purchasing the excess waiver option, the excess on the policy is reduced to £0 and you would therefore not be responsible for making a payment toward a claim.

Missed Connection

This extension provides additional travel insurance cover in the event you miss a connecting flight, ferry, cruise ship, train or motor vehicle as a result of a delay to your initial outbound transport.

Terrorism Cover

This extension provides additional insurance cover to enable you to cancel or cut short your trip if a terrorist act occurs within a 40 miles radius of your pre booked accommodation and you no longer wish to travel.

Animals Sanctuary

An Animal Sanctuary is not open to the public like a Zoo. This means that visitors must be supervised when entering the Sanctuary, to ensure the animals remain safe, comfortable and stress free.

Caring for animals is the first and foremost purpose of an Animal Sanctuary, especially where the animals have had a difficult past. The second is educating the public.

Animals are kept in an environment that is as natural as possible, but people are still allowed to see them. Seeing animals in their natural habitats, instead of cages, might change the way that the General Public looks at them.

A better understanding of animals and a closer insight into their life will result in a deeper care for their well being.

Voluntary Work in an Animal Sanctuary

Volunteering in an Animal Sanctuary is a rewarding experience with many Sanctuaries relying on the help of Volunteers in all aspects of running the Sanctuary.

There is a vast array of options, if you want to work in an Animal Sanctuary. Volunteers are appreciated everywhere and you can travel the world and work in an Animal Sanctuary on every Continent.

Volunteer responsibilities are many; they might include helping with food preparation, feeding the animals and maintaining enclosures.

Popular Locations

There are Animal Sanctuaries all over the world. Particularly when traveling around Australia and the USA, you will come across several.  South East Asia and Africa also have their share of them, providing homes to animals such as Elephants and Tigers.

  • Chengdu Bear Rescue Centre China
  • Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary, Borneo
  • Cedar Row Farm Sanctuary, Canada
  • The Vervet Monkey Foundation, South Africa
  • Danau Girang Field Centre, Malaysia

If you plan to work in an Animal Sanctuary, it is important that you have the appropriate inoculations. Check with your Doctor or Vaccination Centre to establish what vaccinations are required for the country you are travelling to.

As your duties will entail working with animals, it is important that you have an up to date Tetanus shot as well as the Rabies Vaccination.

Common Injuries

No matter how comfortable an animal may seem around humans, it lives on instincts and, therefore can be unpredictable.

If you are working with predatory animals, no matter what size or species, you should always be careful. Even Herbivores can be unpredictable and dangerous - they can bite, but kicking and lashing out are possible as well.

Pre Existing Medical Conditions

If you have pre existing medical conditions and you plan to work in an Animal Sanctuary whilst travelling abroad, we are able to provide you with a policy.

Please Note: This policy does cover Working with Wild Animals and having direct contact with them.
