About the local hosting organizationThe workcamp will take place in a "Natura 2000" area, an area recognized and protected by the European Union for the quality and uniqueness of its environment. It's been several years now that at the end of the summer, the city and the syndicate in charge of the preservation of this environment, together organize an international workcamp to participate in the protection of the area.
About the volunteer workSame as the previous year, the work will mainly consist of protecting the area by eradicating the "Witch's Claws", a plant that grows very quickly and puts the delicate balance of this area at risk. You will be accompanied in this work by a syndicate worker, who will teach you about the area and its specificities, and how to protect it.
Local accommodationThe partner will provide housing in a guesthouse in a nearby village. Transportation (provided by the organization) will be needed every day to reach the work area.
About the project locationYou will be hosted in Saint Laurent de Salanque, and the work will take place on Leucate's beaches. This project takes place in an area by the sea, which is visited by a lot of tourists during the summer holidays. However, at the time of the workcamp, most of the tourists are already gone, so you will have the opportunity to enjoy the numerous leisure activities of the area without being overcrowded by tourists.
