Volunteers will be required to pay a £195 application fee, and thereafter, lodging costs in the field will be covered for the full 8 weeks (or longer). Volunteers will be reimbursed for food up to 80 USD per week, but will need to cover other personal expenses. The Nature Conservancy will provide transportation to and from the worksite each day and will offer one trip per week to town to purchase food and other supplies.
All volunteers must also arrange and pay for medical and accident/travel insurance. The Nature Conservancy provides limited accident / emergency medical insurance that is in addition to a personal insurance policy.
To secure a placement on this project, you will need to complete and submit the online application form along with your application payment of £195 (included in the total project cost listed above) as well as providing 3 references, in addition to sending us your CV/resume, and a covering letter by email. We will also need to contact you by Skype for a suitable interview – we will email you in advance to arrange a suitable time. If for some reason, your application is not accepted, we will reimburse this payment fully. Once your place is confirmed, you will receive a pre-departure package with detailed information on getting to your project, suggested items to bring, details on the work you will be doing and so on.
Volunteers can join for a minimum of 8 weeks, up to 10 weeks maximum between June & August. Please note that all dates for 2019 now filled – watch this space for 2020 dates.
