Description

Volunteer with animals and preserve nature in the bright lands of Valencia, Spain. The endless coast draws many, but the beautiful mountains, forests, islands, and cool rivers further in, offer just as much fun. The plethora of geography brings with it a wide diversity of flora and fauna, many of which are in need of human support.

Volunteers can choose between the two different locations and types of work. The first places volunteers in Albufera Natural Park which is home to Spains largest lake and many rare species yet it is an easy bus ride from the city of Valencia. The second option will take volunteers further inland to work on different nature reserves. This placement is only available from October to June and focuses more on the environment and vegetation rather than animal populations.

Highlights

1. Volunteers are prepared and trained with a welcome pack and introduction upon arrival

2. Program includes comprehensive travel & health insurance

3. Most volunteer work is scheduled during the mornings leaving afternoons and weekends free for exploring or other personal interests

4. Help nature while surrounded by some of its finest examples: Sierra Calderona, Sierra de Mariola, the Montgo Natural Park, and the Sierra of Espadan

5. Enjoy the splendid Mediterranean weather and cuisine no matter which volunteer option is chosen
