Volunteer for wildlife conservation
To volunteer for something means to do something for someone or an organisation without any obligation to do it and without being promised any reward or payment for what they’ve done. In other words, they do it free of charge in their own time.
Volunteering can take place in all sorts of ways such as:
Volunteering to care for wildlife habitat often involves doing physical labour in what may not be the best of weather conditions. It may involve mending fences, putting up fences (which could include stone walls), litter collecting, caring for ponds, lakes or reservoirs, cleaning up beaches etc. The work is generally practical in nature and you are likely to get wet at some point and probably dirty & muddy depending on what you’re doing and where you are - but that’s all part of the fun!
At the least you often find you’re meeting like-minded people who want to make a difference as well and there’s nothing like spending time in the company of such people. It’s all very empowering.
