Review for Conservation Volunteers International Program, Inc., Orinda, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I participated in CVIP's March 2008 trail work trip in Torres Del Paine National Park in Chile. I assisted as one of the crew chief for one of teams. CVIP has forged a strong relationship with the Park, as well as the country's conservation/environmental authorities and has also done work in the parks of Santiago. The trip was well run and we as volunteers felt that our efforts were regarded as valuable and much appreciated. We had local Park personnel and Chile's director of environmental affairs working right alongside of us. I have not been able to go on a CVIP trip since 2008, but have been following their work and kept in touch with those I met. I also contributed toward a bridge in the Park that is a current project.
