How to become a volunteer in three short steps:
1. Think about which are your important causes
Which issues most interest you? Which injustice most resent you and you are willing to pick up the mountains just to not allow it to happen? What kind of people you want around you?
2. Consider how much time you can spend volunteering
Has all sorts of possibilities, see above, it is important to know what you are looking for.
3. Ask friends, whether they are engaged already with something
You may find something unsuspected, for example, that a friend has helped to set up the birdhouse or has made great pictures of animals. And then when came ideas for common projects, your friendship will never be the same!
You can spend more or less a time as you want. Any time that you can spare will be highly appreciated and will help in our vital care for wildlife!
