Hosted by our French partner Solidarités Jeunesses, this volunteer project is focused on preserving protected natural land. 

 

WHAT WILL I BE DOING ON THIS PROJECT? 

Forget bubbling cauldrons and magic wands, the witches we're dealing with here are a much realer and more dangerous threat, that of an invasive plant species known as the 'witch's claws'. This project will take place in Leucate, a "Natura 2000" area, that is an area recognised and protected by the European Union. With this project, you will be actively working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal number 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

You'll stay in a guesthouse in Saint-Laurent de la Salanque, and transportation will be provided to reach the work area around Leucate's pond. Food will be provided, and meals will be prepared in turns by yourself and the other volunteers.

WHAT ABOUT LEISURE TIME? 

This project will take place in an seaside area popular with tourists during the summer holidays. At the time of the project however, most of the tourists will have already left and volunteers will be free to enjoy the numerous activities available without it being overcrowded. Additionally, the local partner association will organise activities that will immerse you in the local culture and heritage, most notably local cuisine! Volunteers will also be involved in the celebration of local cultural through an ecological festival.
