Spain is a lot more than Barcelona and Madrid and this particular project lets the participants explore the Eastern part of Spain - Valencia. One of the most beautiful regions of the country, the coastline of Valencia has long stretches of beaches surrounded by forests. Quite naturally, the region attracts a lot of water sports enthusiasts and beach lovers. However, because of the spread of unplanned tourism, the marine life of the region bore the brunt of the increase and now calls out for conservation efforts.
Volunteering Solutions, thus, offers a niche Marine Conservation Program in Denia, a port town in Valencia. Participants in this project will get to understand the impact of tourism on marine life, ways to minimize its adverse impact, monitor the progress and spread awareness on the same. A great opportunity for anyone looking for a career in marine biology or as a conservationist, time away in the wilderness of Eastern Spain can be a fruitful gap year addition as well.
Your volunteering adventure in Spain will only get better with Volunteering Solutions. Like we keep saying, just pack your bags and arrive.
Volunteers are provided pickup from the Valencia Airport. The airport is served by some major airlines such as Iberia, Lufthansa, Ryan Air, Air France, Air Berlin and Transavia and has direct flights from major cities in Europe. Participants doing the project in Denia can also be provided from Alicante Airport.
All volunteers will be provided with an orientation session by the local coordinator. Areas like safety, locations, transportation, things to see etc will be covered in the Orientation. After your orientation is over, you will be introduced to your project.
