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

Rating: 5 stars  

I've participated in three volunteer trips with Conservation Volunteers International Program (Conservation VIP). Each better and more fulfilling than the last, not because one is better than the other, but because the experiences and the feeling of doing good keep building on each other with each trip. My first was Galapagos! Such a special place and it needs our help and protection. Next was Torres del Paine National Park, in Chile. Stunning, and again, the park really needs volunteers in order to help maintain the trail network and infrastructure from overuse. Lastly, and most recently, Scottish Highlands. Scotland was once covered in forests..... not so today, but with the help of organizations like Conservation VIP and our allies, Trees for Life, maybe some day in the not too distant future, Scotland will again look like it once did. It is so rewarding to give back to the environment in all these wonderful places. Thanks Conservation VIP!!!
