Conservation High School Specials for Teens
Projects Abroad’s Conservation High School Special projects are for students who want to contribute to the preservation and protection of rare plant and animal species. As a volunteer, you can get involved with environmental and wildlife conservation initiatives that focus on activities such as reforestation, observing and analyzing habitats and animal populations, collecting data, building and maintenance work, and more.
