Eco-volunteering projects

Eco-volunteering projects suggested by SVI are not to be confused with eco-tourism. This is not green tourism but foremost international volunteering projects focusing on environmental protection. All of our projects are designed by local associations and managed by local volunteers.

Thanks to the help of local volunteers, volunteers help carry out programs of research, education, conservation or protection of biodiversity and natural heritage.

Eco-volunteers are people who do not have any special skills, who are motivated and involved in environmental issues. Even though it is not necessary to have any scientific training courses, you must be willing to learn, to participate in very physical work and to be really interested in this type of volunteering.
