”You will love this program if you love traveling, prefer outdoor activities, have an adventurous spirit and are curious about other cultures. I was involved in beach and waterway clean-­ups, dealing with the global challenge of litter and the impact of humanity on our marine environment. The other set of activities was focused on native bush preservation. We were weeding, collecting seeds and removing invasive species at a native tree nursery, making it possible to bring the local wildlife and native bush back to their special place.”
