Item description for Green Volunteers: The World Guide to Voluntary Work in Nature Conservation by Fabio Ausenda...

The World Volunteers Guide lists nearly 200 organizations worldwide for people who want to work in international humanitarian projects but don't know where to begin. Opportunities are from 2 weeks to 2 years or more. The guide lists projects suitable for students or people with no professional experience and projects for experts in their professional field. The guide offers explanations of the different kinds of work and job duration according to age, experience, and time availability. An extended annotated list of Internet resources allows the reader to find hundreds of additional volunteer organizations, beyond what is listed in the guidebook. Two indexes allow the reader to select organizations according to geographical area and aid sector. For each organization, the guide offers a brief description of the work, a list of countries where it operates, the skills and languages required and/or previous training required, the cost and benefits for the volunteer, the minimum and maximum duration of the volunteering period, and the application procedure.

The Green Volunteers Guide lists over 200 projects worldwide for those who want to experience active conservation work as a volunteer. Projects are yearround in a variety of habitats and countries. Lasting from one week to one year or more, these projects involve research on wildlife, wildlife rehabilitation centers, volunteer work in national parks and protected areas, as well as general conservation work with a variety of species, both marine and terrestrial. The guide offers 3 indexes that help prospective volunteers easily choose their favorite project, and are indexed by geographical location, animal species, or project cost. Most projects are open to anyone, despite experience or language requirements. As an added feature, anyone who purchases a Volunteers guide can receive free updates via the Internet through an individual password distributed inside each guidebook.
