Volunteer in Croatia
Croatia, is more or less a remote region. The capital city of Zagreb is by far the largest, with a population of about 700,000. In Zagreb, you will find the majority of volunteer opportunities. Other cities such as Rijeka, Osijek and Split, are more remote with populations of about 100,000 people. The sparse population of the country is what makes this country magical: the medieval architecture lining the city streets combined with the unrivaled beauty of the coast makes this country a gem of the Mediterranean. The many islands also have small populations, making the locals seasoned island-hoppers.
Outside the cities, there are many volunteer projects aimed at preserving the natural environment. One project that is particularly popular is working to conserve native species such as the bottlenose dolphin and brown bear populations. Because the land’s terrain is so adventure-friendly, most volunteer organizations combine work with fun. The territory is perfect for kayaking and hiking, and the country’s location makes it easy to access the rest of Eastern Europe for travel.
Volunteer in Croatia and experience the relaxed, yet adventurous, way of life on the Adriatic Coast and help revive the local environment and community. But be warned, you may fall in love with the friendly smiles, laidback attitude and beach views; the challenge lies in going back home! read more close
The weather was warm and sunny and we saw dolphins on our very first outing on the boat! It was so much fun seeing them in their natural habitat. The next day, we observed the data we collected by examining the pictures of the dolphins and matching them to the existing dolphins in the catalog.
