Protection of flora and fauna
Description: This animal rescue and centre for environmental education has the word “Vydra” (Otter) in its name, because for them, it is the flag species and symbol of environment and its protection. Their long-term goal is to raise understanding, respect and responsibility of society towards nature and the environment, in contrast to the standard black-and-white outlook. On top of taking care of rescued animals, they do educational programs for local schools and visitors.
Type of Work: This year, the NGO would like to add another “attraction” to their animal rescue and create and educative garden, where people could see and learn how to attract nature in their own gardens (in a simple and cheap way). Therefore, you will help with building insect hotel, walls for lizards etc. If there is time left, you will help with building fences and exhibits for the animals.
Study Theme: You will learn about animal care, get to know what dangers people prepared for animals and how to behave when you find one that is hurt or abandoned. There will be also many workshops and seminars about the environment and its protection, and of course you will learn about diversity and its promotion in your own garden.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be accommodated in a separate hall and it is necessary that they bring their own mats and sleeping bags. There is a bathroom & toilet in the same building. Volunteers will have their own kitchen and help with preparation of meals, vegetarian food possible. There is wi-fi access.
Language: The language spoken in the Czech Republic is Czech, but we do not expect you to know it! English will be the language of the workcamp, and we will teach basic words in Czech at the beginning, since most local people do not speak English. But do not worry, the are very friendly and easy-going!
Approximate Location: The animal rescue is located in beautiful town in the south of the Czech Republic. It is perfect for trips in calm woods, exploring cultural heritage or enjoying canoe trips.
