Ecotourism, Ecovolunteerism, Volunteerism, Voluntourism..all those concepts are becoming more and more popular in the tourism business. People are no more satisfied with attending the show, they want to be part of it, they look forward to directly experience, explore, touch, feel and dirty their hands, in order to get to know a place, its costumes and uniqueness. Sustainability, ethics, fairness, responsibility, conservation and respect are the new key words. Earthwatch is probably the most renowned portal advertising voluntary work around the world and it is one of the most reliable intermediary between the community willing to engage and projects happening in various locations and targeting different species and with different aims.
It is a great honor for us to have been accepted and we can’t wait to start the collaboration next summer.
Please check the “Dolphins of the Egyptian Red Sea” page for more information.
Just a quick reminder: with the advent of Earthwatch, our address firstname.lastname@example.org will be pensioned starting from February 2012. In fact, the email address is still working for those of you who would like to join the last expeditions pre-Earthwatch due in January and February 2012! Come on, it would be a nice detox therapy after Christmas and New Year’s Eve binges!
