Work: The work mainly consists of doing various gardening jobs in the green areas on the large Zoo territory: clearing and tiding up, mowing grass, cutting bushes, planting flowers. Most of the work will be outdoors. In case of rainy weather alternative work indoors will be found. The work is planned for 5-6 hours a day. Please note that the work does not include direct contact with the animals.

In addition to this, a couple of days of the camp may be spent with some gardening and tidying up work in the Botanical Garden of Tallinn and Open Air Museum, which are partners of the Zoo.

Accommodation: You will stay in a youth centre in Tallinn. Volunteers will have one big sleeping room, common room, equipped kitchen, shower and toilets. There is also shower in the Zoo which can be used after the work. You will sleep on mattresses on the floor.  Volunteers have to prepare their own meals for breakfasts and dinners. Lunches will be taken together with the Zoo gardening staff at the working place.

Why we recommend: This camp provides an excellent opportunity to experience the vivid life of Tallinn in the summer. Volunteers will work in 3 different venues in the short period of this camp: the Zoo, the Botanic Garden of Tallinn and Open Air Museum. Exciting!
