Help protect the lush surroundings of some of the world’s most stunning areas by volunteering on a community environmental project abroad. There are thousands of different plant and wildlife species the world over and issues such as deforestation and global warming have played a major role in the way these species continue to breed. Your work will help conserve the fauna and flora across the globe and improve overall soil and water quality.
Regular tasks can vary day to day when on a community environmental project but may include monitoring and surveillance, data collection, sample collecting, digging trenches for pipes and tubing, building dams… the list goes on!
Most environmental volunteering projects require a Monday to Friday working week with weekends free to explore the neighbouring provinces, taking part in such activities such as trekking, visiting hot springs, scuba diving and more. If community environmental projects interest you, contact one of our partners and take part in environmental volunteering on your gap year.
