perfil del voluntario

Participants should have interest and love to nature, they have to like staying and working outside, it would be great if participants would have nature education background, as example - biologist, geographer, chemist, environmentalist, forester; however, it's not necessary. In addition, it would be important that volunteer would be physically healthy and strong, because many tasks would be carried out outdoors (sometimes the whole day), which takes lots of energy and sometimes requires strength.
