Do something different on holiday - go on a volunteer holiday for wildlife and conservation
There are many ways to help wildlife conservation efforts and one of them is to have more of a hands-on approach and help practically. A great way to do this is to have a volunteer holiday! And you don't need a whole year of your life to make a difference - there are short volunteer holidays as well as long ones.
Volunteer holidays may mean doing one or more of several things such as:
Every volunteer holiday will be different - a lot will depend on how much you are prepared to put in; as the old saying goes; but there is no doubt that volunteer holidays are a great way to re-charge those batteries, have a complete change of scene, spend time with people who also want to do something positive to help wildlife conservation or animals in general; and they will certainly give you memories to hold for a lifetime!
There are volunteer holidays around the world, caring for a wide variety of animals with everything from penguins to elephants, tigers to whales and dolphins.
Here are just a few ideas - you could head to Romania or Cambodia to help bears or go to South Africa to help primates, or what about a short voulnteer holiday in Europe or the UK?
