We at valueofvolunteering.org want to share our experiences of what volunteer work can really be like. Through our video documentary we want to show the breadth of volunteer opportunities available, help you choose which project is right for you and provide information on how to find such projects. We will also show how good grass-roots organisations are run and how volunteer work is best applied to the specific cause of the organisation.[/box]
Between January and May 2012 we travelled from Guatemala to Panama visiting 14 different volunteer projects in conservation, ranging from reforestation and protected areas management to animal rescue centres and single species conservation efforts such as marine turtle projects. Information on each project we visited is available on the map below as well as with the documentary episode on which they appear.
WHO WE ARE:
We are a brother and sister team of biologists with a keen interest in travel and conservation. We also both share in a great passion for filmmaking and other artistic pursuits such as photography, painting and scientific illustration.
