Work: Work in Karula is pulling out species of invasive plants before their seed ripe on semi-natural meadows.
Work in Vatla will take place on abundant sand quarry, with a large population of otherwise rare amphibian. It consists of cutting and collection of brushwood, mainly junipers around a small pool where natterjacks spawn. Nattejacks are typical for open landscape, and pools they spawn have to be exposed to sun.
Typical working hours per day 6 hours per day (for example: 9 -12 & 13-16).
Accommodation: Simple shared accommodation in both places. Volunteers need their own sleeping bag. You may take a tent, if you wish to have more privacy. All food is included except lunch on day for travelling. You will cook our own food (ingredients are provided) most of the time, some days the food will be cooked by locals.
Pick-up time is on 25.06 afternoon or evening, depending on the arrival time to Estonia. The journey from Tallinn takes about two and half hours and costs about 10 Euros.
Why we recommend: If you’re interested in conservation work in nature parks and protected areas, this project is the one for you! You will have the opportunity to be closer to nature, promote environment-friendly and sustainable lifestyle. You will work with local people alongside volunteers from other countries.
