The landscape of the Valencia region is wrought with amazing contradictions. It is packed with hills, mountains, rivers, forests and marshlands, which make for a spectacular landscape. Standouts include the Albufera Natural Park and the Sierra Calderona. The project is mostly active within the Albufera nature reserve, close to the city – a wetland area as beautiful as it is ecologically significant. During your time as a volunteer you will actively contribute to conserving and safeguarding this unique habitat. You will learn how this unique natural heritage is being protected and how active conservation of the countryside is helping to reduce the environmental impact of agriculture and tourism. You will work with volunteers from around the world and assist local teams to protect the environment.
The second conservation project is based in the fishing port of Denia, working on the protection and conservation of marine ecosystems on Cape San Antonio. The cape is part of the awe-inspiring Montgó Nature Reserve and is surrounded by the marine reserve “Reservat Marina del Cabo de San Antonio”, established to safeguard the beautiful sea that circles the cape. The idyllic fishing port Denia lies at the heart of the Valencian Community and is located between the cities of Valencia and Alicante, nestled in a gorgeous landscape. In the area you can find places like the Montgó Natural Park, the Cape San Antonio Marine Reserve and the Pego wetland area. You will work on gorgeous beaches in the surrounding area; you will learn diving and snorkelling; and you will play a part in awe-inspiring volunteer projects, working towards the conservation of the marine ecosystems.

As a volunteer you will gain fundamental knowledge of working to protect the environment. You will take part in numerous research projects, which will give you the chance to experience the region’s unique wildlife up close.
