St. Eustatius Volunteer in St. Eustatius

"I spent an amazing month in Statia, which was too short. I did several tasks into the Natural Park: marine and terrestrial. I helped with the Iguana patrol, inside the Botanical garden, checking the trails and during the summer week with the local kids."

Sarah Perche, France

The Caribbean holds so much more than just pirate treasure, and St Eustatius, affectionately known as Statia, is the just one of example of this fact.  From idyllic beach to rainforest treetops, and from calming woodlands to a large, volcanic crater, this small island constituency will leave your eyes sparkling, your mind rested and your heart full.  Its close-knit and friendly community is an amalgamation of a variety of cultures which come together in harmony across the numerous, lively celebrations throughout the year.  With its incredible array of land and marine life and historically known as ‘the Golden Rock’, because of its natural beauty, St. Eustatius is bound to live in your dreams years after your visit.

Volunteering in St. Eustatius offers you the chance to immerse yourself in island life and play your part in helping to protect and conserve the wildlife found in the marine and national parks of the island.
