Environmental Conservation Volunteering in Tanzania
Our environment is precious and now more than ever we need to protect it. With your help you can educate present and future generations on important environmental issues. Get back to nature, off the beaten track and experience the real Tanzania!
As there are little rainforest areas in Tanzania due to its weather conditions and landscape, forestry departments are trying to ensure what rainforest they do have, is protected.
One rainforest you will volunteer with in Lake Eyasi does a good job at maintaining the environment around the area. It is important this effort is kept up, as many areas do not have enough trees, which can impact the atmosphere quality very negatively.
Arusha’s and Manyara rainforests are also a great location for keeping bees! Beekeeping is a sustainable and critical activity for this area, helping to spread pollination. Beekeeping is beneficial throughout the world, as unfortunately, bee populations are rapidly dropping.
Top Volunteer Programs in Tanzania
What project should you do when you volunteer in Tanzania?! ☆ Does your head feel sick of working at your current workplace, is your heart dreaming of going abroad, and is your belly filled with excitement when you think of experiencing a new culture first-hand? You cannot get closer to the local people of a country than by volunteering in a charitable project. In the following, we want to introduce you to the SIX most interesting projects in Tanzania.
Our bee efforts bring along a ‘sweet’ side effect too. You guessed it- honey! Local villagers enjoy the bees natural honey, which not only holds nutritious health benefits, but they can even earn a small extra income when there is enough to sell.
This project works with an environmental club via a local school and encourages students to learn more on environmental conservation. You have an excellent opportunity to provide them with critical knowledge about this subject, advising students on how to interact with their environment in the right way. Your time will be spent educating local citizens to be more environmentally responsible and actively working in the area. By teaching future generations, you can have a lasting impact on these communities.
Your daily activities will be a combination of tasks depending on the weather or season. You will most likely work on tree planting in the forest and in community spaces and helping in the tree nursery. You can also get involved in bee keeping and with the environmental club, teaching classes in the local school or community halls, focused at the kids and teenagers.
Everyone is welcome to join this program, particularly those working or studying in the forestry field, as this can be a fantastic way of increasing your skills. With an opportunity to work alongside real park rangers, you’ll be able to exchange your knowledge with them and work as a team.
