Wildlife conservation and community volunteer projects and internships worldwide

Grenada Volunteer in Grenada

" It was a very hands-on project, helping to collect data about the turtles, their eggs and the nests, which was very rewarding. I also had the opportunity to explore Grenada too. I visited waterfalls, a tropical island, chocolate and rum factories, St George’s and climbed Welcome Rock. I found the Grenadians to be lovely people who were always very kind and helpful."

Rhiannon O'Neil

Though the smallest independent country in the Western hemisphere, the nation of Grenada is full of colourful gems and a spirited culture. It has peaceful waterfalls to contrast to its vivid annual carnivals that explode with dance and music. Colourful towns litter the coastlines, set against deep, dense rainforest; and as you wander around, you can almost taste the spices, for which the island is famous, in the air. With salutations an important part of daily etiquette, the friendliness of the people is matched only by their animated retelling of age-old folktales.

Coming to volunteer in Grenada on our leatherback sea turtle programme will enable you to encounter vibrant people, and experience the culture, spices, wildlife and scenery whilst having a tropical escape to a place that ironically feels like home.
