You could collect butterflies in the Amazon, assist Europe's marginalized gypsies, teach music in Ghana, or work in an Argentinean soup kitchen. All these idea and more are made very accessible with the author's attention to detail, good write-ups and helpful references.
There are opportunities close to home and at the far ends of the earth to volunteer and help people while you learn new skills, whether you want to survey biodiversity of coral reefs in the Philippines, or get an elephant driver's license in Mahout. (My favorite idea!) "The 100 Best Volunteer Vacations" has got you covered, for adventure in North America, Europe, the Mideast, Africa, Asia and Australia.
As a conservation charity - our project [...] is described by Pam Grout and this has led to some excellent interactions. From this book, we've had several volunteers of high caliber choose to visit and help New Zealand rainforest and to particiapte in the eco-tours that we intregrate with our conservation work.
This book is an accurate and valuable resource in bringing together people looking to do good, and as a volunteer organisation we fully endorse this book and similar publications that cut through the green-wash of modern 'voluntourism' and get down to the nuts and bolts of taking practical, and meaningful action.
