Travelling in Oaxaca with not enough time to volunteer
If you are travelling in Mexico and you don’t have enough time to participate in long experiences more than a few days, but you would like to spend a bit of your time supporting local groups. Have a unique experience protecting turtles and wildlife! There are a few options for you:
Depending on the situation, you will be able to join to one group already gathered for the days that you are free in the program or make one itinerary for you to get involved in the conservation activities that you choose.
If you prefer to go on your own, but you would like to support the conservation activities, you can visit the local groups. Join them to their amazing tours and experiences in nature as part of their ecotourism services.
