Conservation Volunteer!
Madagascar’s ecosystems are some of the world’s most unique and biodiverse, yet they are under severe threat; 90% of original littoral forests have been lost due to human activities, and lemurs are the world’s most endangered group of primates. For over 15 years our SEED Conservation Research Programme (SCRP) has been running in the beautiful coastal area of St Luce, which is surrounded by rare fragments of littoral forest.

This experience offers an opportunity for learning and personal development; spending time in such a rewarding, but challenging environment, whilst working alongside a team of conservation experts.

Take the whole ‘office with a view’ thing to another level: work as a lift attendant up the mountain and ask yourself daily, 'Who said an office had to have four walls?'

As far as jobs go, you’ve peaked. Checking the lift machinery and helping skiers and boarders to load and unload onto the lifts, you’re all about being safety conscious with a smile. (Not hard, just look around you). Clocking in more mountain time than a Yeti, you’ll build up extensive knowledge of the mountain and conditions of the runs.
