Join this unique wildlife conservation program in the desert landscape of the Arava, and help to re-populate the nature reserve with the region's native species!
Your volunteer day will start around 7am as you prepare food for the animals and ensure that each is fed appropriately. Afterwards, you will work on a special project which could range from a game drive through the park to maintenance on an enclosure. Your work day will finish around 2pm at which point you will be taken back to the volunteer house for some rest and relaxation.Fridays and Saturdays are free days.
The international beach resort of Eilat is only 50 kilometers away (price to / from Eilat by bus is about $5), if volunteers want to enjoy some snorkeling, go to an internet cafe, or enjoy the vibrant night life. For those that want to see the rest of the country, it is easy to use public transportation and explore Tel Aviv or the north of Israel and no trip would be complete without a mud bath and float in the Dead Sea.
You will stay in a basic house on the reserve grounds in shared, single sex rooms with 2 bunk-beds and a big closet. There is a shared bathroom with a hot water boiler and both the bedrooms and living room are equipped with air-conditioning. The house has a fridge and fully functioning kitchen plus a TV, computer and WiFi for your use. There is also filtered water at the house and a washing machine.
