Environmental conservation work could take volunteers to Ecuador, Costa Rica or even India! You could be assisting in projects like protecting the ecological reserves of the 48,000 acre Mindo-Nambillo reserve, studying the biodiversity of one of 42 underground caves in Barra Honda National Park or teach communities how to integrate practical environmental solutions into their everyday lives in Tamil Nadu, South India.
Responsibilities of an environmental conservation volunteer may include hands-on tasks such as farming, cultivating, tending to livestock and planting vegetation as well as analytical duties such as collecting and analysing data, reporting, deriving conclusions for data already gathered from previous projects. Volunteers may also be asked to contribute to government policy for the future sustainability of the native region.
