UK Environmental Volunteer, where?

Sustainable eco tourism, environmental, and wildlife conservation in villages, local communities, and national parks in Thailand, Laos, and Nepal.
With Openmind Projects you find eco volunteer opportunities in Thailand, Laos, and Nepal. You can join a sustainable eco tourism and community development, environmental, and conservation project in a village, national park, organic farm, elephant, or marine project. When you volunteer in sustainable community, eco tourism development, and wildlife conservation projects, you give needed and appreciated help the local community or national park. You help them conserve their environment and protect wildlife and nature so they, rather than tour operators from abroad, benefit from eco tourism. Eco volunteer positions are available in Thailand, Laos, and Nepal in jungles, mountains, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, by the sea, or on islands.

Community Based and Sustainable Eco Tourism in Thailand, Nepal, and Laos: what it means

Sustainable community and eco tourism development means avoiding damage to the local environment and nature, which is a major problem with mass tourism in Thailand where coral reefs are badly damaged by boats carrying tourists anchoring on the reefs, animals are poached, plants are harvested to the verge of extinction, and vast areas of forest are over logged.

Responsible and sustainable eco tourism avoids undesirable effects on local culture, traditions, and behavior, also a common problem with mass tourism. In Nepal and Cambodia many children learn to beg instead of learning for a job.

Community based eco tourism involves the local population and offers an alternative source of income to local communities instead of being paid to poach animals and hardwood trees, which frequently happens in Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Laos, and Nepal.
