With such an assortment of terrain, weather and vegetation, Italy takes you on an adventure; through windy roads across golden fields, charming cobbled streets, rocky coastlines dropping into azure water and deep-green forested mountains peaking at snowy heights. There is incredible beauty held within the borders of this boot-shaped country that really uplifts all who travel within it.
Not to be outdone, biodiversity flourishes across the country, thriving from the white-tipped mountains deep into the corralled waters (and everywhere in between). Unique species are especially prominent in Italy and ecological ‘hotspots’ are found throughout the differing landscapes. In the Ligurian Sea, volunteers in Italy can experience sighting and researching the second largest whale in the world, the Fin Whale, amongst many other cetacean species.
