Patrick van de Velde
Patrick van de Velde (Founder of FRONTEERING TRAVEL SERVICES INC.) has had a passion for wildlife, travel and adventure since the day he could walk. Having travelled all over the world, he decided in 2006 to go abroad for a year to Vancouver Canada to gain new experiences. Immediately he fell in love with Canada's vast landscapes and decided to stay. Since January 2007 Patrick has been active in the goabroad industry arranging internship and work experience placements in Canada.
Missing the adventure and wildlife in his daily work he started up a volunteer experience program in some of the remote areas of Canada. His mission; to give opportunity to those who would like to volunteer with wildlife and truly make difference. As part of his vision FRONTEERING aims to arrange volunteer abroad and adventure travel experiences in places less visited and unspoiled. FRONTEERING's projects help with true good causes in some of the last frontiers. Places where the need is greater, where there is more to lose and much more to gain. Join one of FRONTEERINGS Volunteer Abroad projects and visit these last frontiers while they are yet unspoiled and hopefully through our combined efforts we can keep it that way!
