The cost to join this project for 2 weeks (12 nights) is £435, 4 weeks (26 nights) costs £725, and every extra 2 week (12 night) period beyond 4 weeks costs £240. Please note these costs are for the shared accommodation option (sharing a 4 person room in a wooden house). If you would like to arrange a private room or volunteer as a couple or group, please email us for further details/pricing. ** Please note that due to Covid 19, individual volunteers will have a private house for themselves, whilst restrictions are in place. If you come as a group, then you can share a house, but if not it will be one person per house. From October onwards, houses will be shared again **
The project costs cover your accommodation, pickup up and drop off from the bus station near Mafra, weekly house cleaning, bed and bath linen, orientation, training and supervision and weekly transport for grocery shopping.
What is not included are your flights and travel to and from the pickup point in Mafra, visa costs (if required), meals, personal expenses, and your own health and travel insurance. Personal sightseeing during your free time is also not included, but our staff are happy to advise you on the best things to see, transportation options and so on.
To secure a placement volunteering with wolves in Portugal, please complete and submit the online application form including your application payment of £195 (included in the total project costs listed above). If for some reason, your application is not accepted, we will reimburse this payment fully. However, for those who are accepted, the remaining balance needs to be paid two months before departure. Once you are confirmed on the project, you will receive pre-departure information with further details on your project, when to arrive, contact details, suggested items to bring, programme information and lots more.
The volunteer programme is available from February to November each year. Arrivals and departures are fixed and on set days as listed below. Therefore you can only volunteer during specific periods as listed below (for 12 nights, 26 nights, or longer).
