The National Park Donau-Auen, established in 1996, preserves the largest floodplains in Central Europe. Its protection originates from a civil initiative against plans to build hydro power plants in the area. The area is a safe haven for nature and biodiversity inbetween two European capitals, Vienna and Bratislava. Among the animals living in the National Park are eagles, beavers, turtles and kingfishers. The volunteers will live and work in the National Park, will help the National Park in the maintenance of this environment and will experience it with their own senses.
Small letter of motivation is required. You should be at least 18 years old and in good physical shape
