About us

Frontier was established in 1989 as a non-profit conservation and development non-governmental organisation (NGO) dedicated to safeguarding biodiversity and ecosystem integrity and building sustainable livelihoods for marginalised communities in the world's poorest countries.

Our first projects were in Tanzania, one of the world's poorest countries. Carrying out groundbreaking surveys in remote forest, savannah, and marine environments, our dedicated teams of volunteers set about building a comprehensive picture of areas that were heretofore ignored, despite being, as we discovered, among the most biodiverse areas in the world.

Why work for us

In over 25 years of operation we have completed countless successful projects in Asia, the Americas, Africa, the Pacific and in Europe.

Our projects have led to genuine and sustainable progress in the protection of endangered species and threatened ecosystems, and the empowerment of vulnerable communities.

As such, we are in an excellent position to offer those who are seeking a career in conservation or development a great inroad into the sectors.
